On this full-day screen printing workshop with Edinburgh-based artist and printer Lou Davis, you will learn how to create a repeat pattern suitable for printing onto fabric.
Although beginner screen-printers are welcome to attend this workshop, it involves a more advanced method of printing, and more advanced equipment, which will perhaps suit those with some previous experience of screen-printing, or who are familiar with the emulsion method.
You'll spend the morning creating patterns and learning how to make them seamlessly repeat across your fabric. Then we’ll take your best pattern and create screen prints using the photo emulsion method. You’ll learn to coat, expose, print and clean silk screens, and then print them onto cotton creating repeating patterns.
You wiil print your final design onto a cushion cover, apron or tea towel ready to take home.
The price includes access to all the equipment you will need, all materials, welcome refreshments and a buffet style lunch.
Please note that The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a first-floor space and unfortunately we do not have lift access.
Repeat pattern screen printing onto fabric: 8 February 2020 10am-5pm
The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a supportive and welcoming home environment in the Edinburgh New Town. Spaces are limited to allow our artists and designer-makers to offer hands-on help and support. All equipment is provided and all the materials you will need (unless stated otherwise). Just turn up, leave any day-to-day worries behind, and immerse yourself in creating something unique.
Refreshment breaks are an important part of The Arienas Collective experiences. They are a time to socialise, make new friends and chat to the artists and designer-makers. We are fortunate to have a fantastic range of independent shops and producers nearby and are proud to feature locally sourced food and drinks.
The price includes all materials and refreshments, and of course you get to take home all the unique products you have created.
All our experiences are also available to book as a private group for up to 8 people. If you would like to book an experience for a larger number please email us.
