Level: All Levels
Teacher: Sam Wingate
Maximum Class Size: 6 people
An introduction to screen printing for textiles will provide you with a chance to develop your own design ideas into a textile print.
By using paper stencils, you will be taught how to turn your ideas into prints onto cotton during the session. You will also be informed about photographic screen-printing techniques should you wish to carry on with the craft at a later date.
Each participant will be able to take away their prints from the day, which with a little handy work, you will be able to make an array of different items.
Samples will be on hand to illustrate the different effects screen-printing with stencils can produce.
Please bring an apron and wear something that can get dirty.
Plain cotton will be provided, but please bring any fabrics with you that you may wish to print onto.
About Sam: Mr Wingate was set up in 2006 as a printed T shirt Label by textile graduate Sam Wingate.
Initially selling from a market stall on Brick Lane, Mr Wingate soon built up a base of stockists and came to open a shop on Columbia Road in 2010.
The Shop has now gone but the Mr Wingate collection has expanded to include a range of homewares, all of which are still hand printed in Mr Wingate's East London studio.
Mr Wingate specializes in low-volume hand printing, which means each product that makes is way out of the studio is ever so slightly different from the next.
