Please bring the following supplies to class in order to complete your project:
Printouts of images or drawings that you might like to work with in class. No photographs or very detailed images, please. Keep your shapes simple as you’ll be cutting them out using a craft knife to make your stencils. We’ll also have plenty of inspiration on hand and will help you transform your ideas into something suitable for printing!
We’ll provide two items to print with in class (choose from tea towels and mini and large tote bags); additional bags and tea towels will be available for purchase (£2-£3 per item).
Finally, screen printing can be MESSY and the textile inks may stain your clothing. Although aprons will be provided, please don’t wear your best gear to class – that goes for your shoes, too. :)
