This is an online workshop. Please check material lists section below for extra details. The workshop is for those who are open to experimentation and trying out new ways of working, not afraid to risks. It will be a creative exploration at home. The workshop will cover making our own screens out of embroidery hoops, and silk organza. I will ask that each student brings a drawing/image/idea they want to print. The prints made will not be exactly like screen printing as this is a 'screen-printing' hack. If comfortable with sharing images I would ask the students to email me photographs of the work made in the workshop, so I can share with the other students, acting as a virtual gallery. You will be sent a craft kit so you can learn this DIY screen printing technique at home. You also need to bring some materials to the workshop. These are listed below in materials section.
Materials List To Bring:
- if you have any a selection of fabrics you would like to print on
- a selection of cards/papers/ sketchbooks you would like to print on
- hairdryer to dry ink and glue to speed up processes (optional)
- old credit card/gift voucher/ membership card (this will act as the squeegee

Please see full terms and conditions for more information.
If a course has already started please call the office as it may be possible to join after the start date. This may only be possible if the course is not already full, if it is not disruptive for the other students and you are aware that you have missed a percentage of the course and the tutor will not have time to catch you up. This will be at discretion of the Folk House. We run our courses termly, so it might be best to start at the beginning of the course.
