Service Description

Have fun creating a botanical print with a sun exposed stencil. No screenprinting experience necessary. Spend the morning arranging a simple botanical composition using plant material and exposing this in the sun to create a stencil. The tutor’s aim is to give you a taste of what can be achieved with simple materials and little equipment. You will use your stencil to print an edition of six prints. Prints will be on A3 size paper. All materials are supplied. So, what if the sun is not shining? In keeping with the low tech approach of the workshop, screens will be exposed using a tradies work light instead of the sun. For inspiration, take a look at my Botanical Silhouette Prints Pinterest Board.
