A five week course.

Learn and explore a range of textile printing methods on this five week introductory course.

You’ll be guided through the different textile printing techniques in a step by step way in each session.

The course will cover:

  • Heat transfer printing using disperse dyes
  • Screen printing onto textiles using blank screens and paper stencils
  • Coating and exposing imagery onto screens using photo sensitive emulsion and our UV exposure unit
  • Colour mixing and screen printing using textile binder and pigment inks

You’ll be encouraged to develop a range of experimental imagery and build up pattern, shape and colour in layers. The aim is to learn the technical aspects of the processes which you can then use to develop further ideas independently.

    Our aim is to bring printmaking to as many people as possible. By their nature, some printmaking processes involve an amount of physical effort. Leeds Print Workshop is based in a basement studio at Patrick Studios, a bespoke venue for artists operated by East Street Arts. It is fully wheelchair accessible, with a lift, larger than standard doors and disabled toilet facilities. We recognise that everybody’s accessibility needs may differ, therefore please email us at hello@leedsprintworkshop.org to discuss any concerns you may have before booking. There is one dedicated disabled car parking space to the side of the building on Rider Street.
