Join artist and printmaker, Ella West, for a screen printing Masterclass. Our workshop will begin with an introduction to the screen-printing process, using blank screens and hand-cut stencils to create graphic designs onto paper, with the option of printing onto fabric if you would like to breathe a new lease of life into an old tote bag. Ella will demonstrate how to experiment with inks and water-soluble pencils to create unique additions to your prints. This two-hour workshop aims to be a fun starter session into the possibilities of printmaking. By the end of the session, participants will have printed colourful designs to take away.

Ella West is a multi-disciplinary artist and educator with a deep curiosity for learning about printmaking, mould-making and ceramics, with an emphasis on experimental screen-printing techniques.

This masterclass is suitable for ages 18+, aside from that, no experience or skill necessary, all welcome!
