Are you an illustrator or artist, just left school or wish to start printing?

Through learning how to break down images into separations and the techniques of combining stencils and overlaying imagery, you will be able to produce stunning multi-coloured designs and finished pieces of artwork.

This course is ideal if you are planning a career as a print technician, studio helper, workshop assistant, or as an artist and designer or perhaps a complete beginner that wishes to try screenprinting for the first time.

With expert guidance from your tutor Donna Peters, this hands-on course will introduce you to all the equipment and a wide range of screenprinting techniques using water based screen-printing processes.

You will be one of only 10 students, so you will have maximum individual attention from your tutor. You will use photographic stencil emulsions to make screens from photographic, digital or hand-drawn sources.

You will use methods of working directly on the screen mesh, therefore allowing experimental print work to be carried out for use with paper and fabrics.


  • Learning how to produce colourful interesting images from their own designs
  • Experiencing many different, exciting stencil making techniques such as paper stencil, photographic and stencils
  • Understanding which stencil making techniques are suitable for different effects/textures/images
