Everything you need to know before attending your workshop!

If you have little or no previous screen printing experience Print Club runs a short workshop to get you started! During the workshop you will learn how to screenprint your own design and go through the whole process from digital image to pulling the squeegee. The technicians will talk you through the history of screenprinting and show you a variety of techniques with examples up in our studio. You will be taught how to artwork in Photoshop and get your design ready to put onto your screen. You will have a go at coating a screen with photo emulsion, expose the design using Big Bertha our professional exposure unit, learn about different inks, squeegees and print a small run using a vacuum table.

You Must Bring:

Your image artwork must be A4 black and white, please bring it along on a USB saved as a .JPEG/.PDF/.PSD file format. You will be able to choose from either Black or White ink at the workshop. Our t-shirt and tote bag printing workshops follow the same format. You will need to bring your own tees or totes with you! Please note that these aren’t supplied however, you can purchase totes from us for an additional £3 each. If you’re booking in for the weekend please call in advance if you wish to purchase totes from us.

Please bring 4 items (tee or tote) with you and 1 tee or tote for testing out on, this can be an old tee with an image on or an old bag. The items must be 100% cotton to absorb our ink so double check before you bring along. You’re more than welcome to bring along items that are of different colours, please do bear in mind you’ll be printing in either black or white ink. For bags we use who are cheap and very good. Once you have completed a workshop you can become a member at Print Club (as long as there is space available).
