Screenprinting is a very accessible medium that can achieve great results even with a minimum of equipment. It is a sophisticated form of stencilling where the stencil is carried on a mesh stretched tightly across a frame.
This one day taster workshop with Jane Sampson on Wednesday 20th September will show how to work on simple tabletop presses which are easy to re-create at home or in a small studio setup. Paper stencils and waterbased inks will be used to create multilayered colourful prints working from own photographs or drawings or simply to explore colour, pattern and shape. Full details plus booking form can be found here.
Jane Sampson is an award winning printmaker who has been screen-printing for over thirty years and has never lost her enthusiasm for the possibilities of this incredibly versatile art form. She teaches printmaking at Brighton University, in her own studio Inkspot Press and also short courses at Westdean College (the Edward James Foundation) as well as exhibiting her own work. She has recently written a screenprinting manual that has been published by Crowood Press.
