Screen Printing Workshop
May 20, 2024
Belmont House Orangery
Take inspiration from the award-winning gardens at Belmont and join us for a day of screen printing in the picturesque Orangery.
Your day begins with a garden tour led by expert Head Gardener, Graeme. As you explore the changing colours and textures of the season, you’ll gather ideas and motifs to use as the basis for your print.
Upon your return to the Orangery, your tutor, Rachel, will guide you through design principles to bring your sketches to a final composition ready for printing. You’ll be introduced to a screen printing technique that allows you to add layer upon layer of colour influenced by the palette of the season.
Materials, printing equipment, and refreshments are included in your workshop ticket. Just remember to bring an apron or painting shirt to protect your clothing, a packed lunch, and a sketchbook and pencils to capture your ideas. Whether you’re new to screen printing or seeking a refresher lesson, this workshop is your perfect escape from your everyday routine.
Meet your tutor, Rachel Moore, a professional Kent-based artist and printmaker with over a decade of experience in guiding both children and adults through the artistic process. She has run workshops for a diverse range of clients, from the National Trust to Spotify. Rachel likes to demystify printmaking techniques so you’ll feel confident to carry on printing at home.
£65.00 per person. Bookings are non-refundable.
