    Overview

    What you'll do

    Learn basic screen printing techniques and more advanced methods and applications, including how to:

    • Design patterns and stencils to print
    • Mix ink pigments
    • Pull the ink through the screen
    • Clean the screen ready for the next print
    • Experiment with different colours, materials and designs
    • Print with foils.

    Location

    The course will take place at our Sion Hill campus in Bath.

    Cost

    The fee for this course is £190 inclusive of materials.

    What to bring

    Please wear old clothing and closed footwear, and bring an apron if you have one.

    You can bring your own lunch, or eat at Café Sion. Light refreshments are provided.

    Designs can be created prior to the course in order to ensure everyone has time to make screens and create more complex designs if desired. Designs should be on A4 white paper, using black ink or black paint (note that the black needs to be really dark to ensure the screen exposes properly).

    Please bring a selection of your own fabrics to print. The University will provide linen, cotton and silk, but depending on the type of prints you'd like to create, you may need additional fabric.
