NEW! Our first silkscreen printing evening course.

Screenprinting is a versatile and accessible technique that is perfect for creating bold, graphic artwork. You will learn how to translate your original art into print and create a series of single-colour and two-colour screenprints. By the end of this course you will have the knowledge and confidence to screenprint on your own.

About the Tutor

Beach is a freelance illustrator who has been making his own screenprints since 2006. He works mainly in pen and ink and loves the way screenprinting transforms the hand-drawn line.
