Stencil Screen Printing Workshop with Zara Shepherd
This course is part of Dillington Discoveries Winter week.
During this course, you will learn the basics of textile screen printing using a stencil method.
Inspiration for your hand cut paper stencil will come from exploring the beautiful grounds at Dillington House, collecting leaves or photographing flowers. Back in the classroom Zara will demonstrate how to develop your visual research into a stencil design. You will hand cut your paper stencils and then learn how to prepare the screen and print your stencil on to a tote bag. You will also be shown how to print multiple colours or a two-layered print.
No previous experience needed Zara is experienced with teaching all levels and will support you through every stage of the process.
