Beginners Screen-printing

Short course

    Learn how to transform your art into a commercial collection of physical prints and enhance your creative potential.

    • Develop your confidence in a print studio.
    • Build your portfolio for professional commissions.
    • Create a commercial collection of physical prints for print fairs, open calls, upcoming stalls and Christmas markets.

    Learn the fundamentals of screen-printing in this ten-week course with professional artist Kelsey Cruz-Martin. During this course you'll discover how to create your drawings and transfer your images onto a screen to produce a series of prints that'll explore techniques including drawing, mark making, cut outs and stencils.

    You’ll experiment with opaque and translucent inks to produce a series of layered screen prints that will enhance your printing skills and confidence.

    This course is designed for artists and small businesses looking to turn their art into a business, side hustle or produce prints to promote their existing business. Beginners Screen-printing is open to complete beginners or acts as a refresher for those who have previous experience.

    “This screen-printing course creates exciting opportunities for local, emerging artists who want to develop their professional portfolio for future commissions and exhibiting opportunities. This short course will provide practical skills to enhance creative potential, building upon a community of printers that contribute to a supportive network of artists.”

Kelsey has worked as a Technical Demonstrator in Screen Print at Bath School of Art, Film and Media since 2018.

    Kelsey’s work is driven by experiential knowledge, her Mexican heritage, cycles, voice and the relationship between language and the body.
