After preparing your own stencils using torn and cut paper, you will begin by printing simple designs, to explore the effects which can be achieved by overprinting different colours of the water-based inks. Building on your experience, you will develop more complex images and learn how to print an edition of your own unique design.
The workshop will provide an ideal introduction to screen-printing and is suitable for people with no experience of the medium. It also offers an opportunity for people with some experience, who wish to further develop their skills.

Melanie has regularly attended courses at West Dean College, amongst others, over many years.
