Screen Printing

These sessions offer an introduction to basic screen-printing techniques. Using various methods including paper stencils, drawing fluid and screen filler the young adults can experience printing their own designs onto fabric.

Working with enterprise19, future plans include producing hand printed items for sale: tea towels, bags and cushions using both individual’s drawings and collaborative designs. Also working with the Art and Furniture Up-cycling groups young adults will have the opportunity to design and print fabrics for upholstery and refurbished garden furniture. This group offers the practical manual side of the printing process – making screens; mixing colours and printing fabrics whilst other participants can experience the drawing and design processes this group offers.

"We use canvases and print designs onto them. I enjoy screen printing because it's a unique kind of art." Alex Vaux
