Your tutor will also introduce you to relevant contextual artists and screen printing terminology.

No previous experience is necessary. The course is for beginners or anyone looking to refresh their skills. Those with previous experience may use the course to develop their skills and become familiar with the facilities at our workshop.

What will l make?

You will produce a series of handmade screen prints A3 size in one or two colours of your own design.

Who is my tutor?

Laura Alice is a printmaker and illustrator specialising in screen print and linocut on paper. Her work is heavily inspired by nature with a particular focus on birds using vibrant colours. Laura values the hand-made in her work, focusing on creating hand-drawn positives for screen print to create rich textures and contrast. Laura has been a long-standing member of Leeds Print Workshop and has 11 years of experience teaching across a variety of art and design disciplines.

Do I need to bring anything?

Basic materials including inks and cartridge paper will be provided. The workshop also sells a range of printmaking papers if you would like to try something different. Prices range from £1 to £3.20 per sheet. You are advised to bring a portfolio folder along if you have one so you can carry your prints home – these are also available to buy at the workshop.

Accessibility

Our aim is to bring printmaking to as many people as possible. By their nature, some printmaking processes involve an amount of physical effort. Leeds Print Workshop is based in a basement studio at Patrick Studios, a bespoke venue for artists operated by East Street Arts. It is wheelchair accessible, with a lift, larger than standard doors and accessible toilet facilities. We recognise that everybody’s accessibility needs may differ, therefore please email us at hello@leedsprintworkshop.org to discuss any concerns you may have before booking. There is one blue badge car parking space to the side of the building on Rider Street, subject to availability.

Please note: we regret that, for safety reasons, only those over the age of 16 will be permitted to undertake the course.
