6 hour workshop
Learn the basics of screen printing onto textiles with designer Georgia Bosson in this fun beginners class where you will learn how to use paper stencils to create a simple yet unique design that will be screen printed onto a beautiful linen base ready to be turned into a 40 x 40cm cushion.
What you will learn:
- How to prepare and create your design
- Colour mixing with professional textile inks
- Printing a three colour design
- Finishing your fabric pieces
You will finish with:
- A hand screen printed textile panel that I will then stitch up into a cushion for you with a feather pad included
- A list of resources of everything that we have used on the day so you can begin your own home printing practice.
My workshops are fun and relaxed and allow for lots of time to make mistakes and experiment (crucial things when learning to print!).
The classes are deliberately small to ensure lots of one to one tuition and advice and to make sure that you get the most out of your day.
Suitable for beginners or those with some experience.
All classes take place at my studio in South Bermondsey which is a short distance from both Surrey Quays and South Bermondsey stations. There is free parking and plenty of safe places to store bikes for the duration of the class.
All materials will be provided as well as a light vegetarian lunch and homemade cake!
What our past attendees say about our classes:
"Had such a great time at Georgia's screen printing workshop. She put on an event just for our party, made us all so welcome, cooked us delicious brownies, and was a fantastic teacher. All of us left with a tea towel or tote bag to be proud of! A lovely thing to do for a special occasion (ours was a hen / leaving party) or just as a one-off to try out something new."
"Had an amazing day learning to screen print a set of four linen napkins! Fantastic experience, Georgia is such a great, patient teacher and made us a delicious lunch too!- highly recommend her screen printing workshop"

About your host, Georgia Bosson
Designer Georgia Bosson studied Embroidery at Manchester University. In 2013 she set up the Georgia Bosson studio in Bermondsey where she started to experiment with screen printing and quickly developed her own signature style characterised by geometric designs and bright colours.
All of Georgia's designs start their life as paper cut stencils which when transferred to cloth come to life, she decided to share the excitement that the screen printing process can bring and in 2016 set up a series of workshops teaching others how to translate their ideas onto fabric and mix the perfect colour!
In the past Georgia has run workshops at a variety of venues from Ikea to more intimate classes in her studio. Classes are available at locations accross London and vary from 2.5 hours to a full day experience.
Everything that you need will be provided on the day including all materials, aprons, lunch and snacks!
