Students can then create a layered stencil screen print, experimenting with colour and imagery and screen print onto a tote bag to take home.

Tutor information

Zara Shepherd; I grew up in Weston-super-Mare where my creative Mum inspired me to try a variety of crafts. This passion for the arts continued through my education, choosing to study a foundation diploma in art and design at Weston College, moving on to a BA (HONS) in textile design at Winchester school of Art.  After graduating with a 2.1 in 2006 I worked as a technical instructor in printed textiles at Loughborough University.

During my time at Loughborough University I achieved an “Associate Fellowship” in teaching at higher education.  Having spent 10 years working at the university I made the decision to follow my dream and create a screen print studio.  I relocated to my home town of Weston-Super-Mare and set up the studio to design and print my own unique gift range and to run creative workshops to fulfil my passion for teaching others this wonderful craft.
