Join artist and printmaker, Ella West, for a festive Make Merry screen printing session. Our workshop will begin with an introduction to the screen-printing process, using blank screens and hand-cut stencils to create decorative designs onto paper. 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 home and use as cards, wrapping paper or colourful decorations with which to bring festive cheer to the holidays. No experience or skill necessary, all welcome!

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. She is also one of our fabulous technicians here at the Institute of Making.

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