Stencil Screen Printing

21st May @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm


Explore screen printing using paper stencils on this one-day workshop.

Get to grips with our fantastic screen printing facilities and learn the basics of screen printing onto paper.

You will use paper stencil methods to print multi-layered prints, experimenting with transparent inks to produce interesting layers and outcomes. Handcut stencils allow you to work quickly and you’ll make a handful of layers throughout the day.

What experience do I need?

This course is suitable for absolute beginners, since we will cover the basics of how to screen print well. However, people who already have screen print in their practice but would enjoy a new approach will also benefit. Stencil screen print can be a great way to bring experimentation and freedom to your practice.

What will I make?

Throughout the day you will produce 10-20 multi-layered, multi-coloured screen prints onto A3 paper to take away with you.

Who is my tutor?

Nat Searle is an artist based in Leeds who primarily works with screen printing. She explores the relationship between stripped back graphics, colour and scale. Inspiration is drawn from her immediate environment with resulting pieces being localised or site specific. Nat is a cooperative member of Leeds Print Workshop and regularly works as one of our technicians, supporting members in the workshop.

Do I need to bring anything?

All materials and equipment will be provided, including the screens, inks and good quality cartridge paper.

You might want to bring some sketchbooks, ideas and source materials for your prints; however, you will also be just fine if you show up on the day with a blank slate and work in an experimental and abstract way. It would be useful to bring a portfolio folder to take your prints home – these are also available to buy at the workshop.

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.
