Screenprinting Workshops

I have over a decade of printing experience and for a number of years I have enjoyed teaching others the magic and mess of screenprinting.

I teach regular printing courses at West Yorkshire Print Workshop, an open access printmaking studio in Mirfield, West Yorkshire.

It’s a cool place – the building is a former Victorian Church School – it’s where I learned the basics of printmaking myself, and I’ve been a member there ever since.

 

My Screenprinted Posters course takes place over a weekend and covers:

  • Designing print imagery using graphics software or by hand

  • Making your design ‘screen print friendly’ – understanding the pros and cons of the medium

  • Ink mixing & colour matching

  • Registration tips and tricks
  • Techniques such as trapping, overprinting, transparency effects, and blends.

  • Paper types and weights

 

NEXT COURSE: July 27th & 28th 2019. £135. More details here.

“The weekend course was the most enjoyable I HAVE HAD of any workshop – EVER! Graham is extremely knowledgeable but at the same time amazing at passing on exactly the required amount of info to pupils within their personal limitations. I really appreciate all the time you gave me and all the encouragement. The trouble-shooting session is what I found most valuable – it’s all very well to know what’s meant to happen, but amazing to already know what to do when it’s actually not! Such a nice, laid-back style in teaching that it caused our group dynamic to be excellent as well. I have not been to any other weekend course where a group has been as good at pulling together and helping one another out as this past weekend.”
