Screen Printing: ‘Just like Andy Warhol!’

Learn to create unique screen printed images, using hand cut stencils.

Screen printing is an ancient technique of printing an image by placing a stencil under a mesh screen and forcing ink through, printing your image colour by colour. Andy Warhol’s vivid images revived this technique as an art form. This course will take you through the process of translating your designs into hand cut stencils and printing them onto fabric or paper (T shirt, cotton bag, or art print). You will learn how to set up screen printing at home if inspired to continue this inexpensive, rewarding and creative printmaking media.

Feel free to bring your ideas as photos or drawings, (preferably on A4 photocopy paper) or find inspiration when you arrive. T shirts and cotton bags will be available for purchase or bring your own. (Only white/ light coloured fabric and at least 50% cotton).

Screen Printing: ‘Just like Andy Warhol!’

Led by: Shelagh Hetreed

We will start the day with a talk and demonstration about Picasso’s work during his Cubist period. Then you will create your own version of a simple cubist drawing which you will transfer into a collage to create your own Cubist artwork. All materials will be provided but if you have any images or papers you would like to use please bring them along.

Shelagh Hetreed has a lifetime of experience as an art educator in formal and informal settings. Her specialisms are screen printing and batik and, for the last decade, she has delivered courses for practicing art teachers, art students, adults and children and young people. Screen printing today uses much technology, meaning that it is mainly studio based. In contrast, Shelagh continues to use accessible materials and tools to produce brilliant results with her students.
