Workshops & EVENTS

Beginners Screen Print Workshop

If you have little or no previous screen printing experience Common Sense runs a short workshop to get you going! You will be given a full induction into our studio so you feel comfortable working in the space. During the workshop you will learn how to screen print your own one colour design onto paper, understanding how you go from paper/digital image to pulling the squeegee through the screen.

You will be shown all the different ways you can create artwork, coat your screen with photosensitive emulsion, expose your design onto your screen using the exposure unit. We will also teach you about different inks and how to mix colours.

Workshop times: 10.00 – 15.00 and cost £45

Please arrive at 10.00 am for a cup of tea and a biscuit to get ready to start at 10.15

We will break for a 30-minute lunch so please bring something to eat or there is the delicious Column Bakehouse on site!

Please also wear old clothes and toes are closed!

Next workshop is the 13th November from 10am to 3pm
