Evening

A great opportunity to learn the basic techniques of screen printing on to fabric with an experienced teacher. Screen printing with paper stencils is a brilliant starting point for learning the process of pulling ink through an open screen to create your own unique designs and is easy to set up at home.

The space is a wonderful environment to try something new and creative in a small group. Classes are just 4 guests per session so you will have plenty of one to one support.

Helen will guide you through the whole process and we'll each try a quick sample print on to fabric, to spark ideas and show you the ropes. You'll then have time to create paper stencils using scissors and/or scalpel, ready to print your own unique design on to a tote bag or tea towel. You are welcome to explore the many books and visual references in the studio to inspire and help you get started.

There will be plenty of time to experiment and pick and choose colours from the studio collection. All inks are water based.

Price includes a choice of a tote bag or tea towel for each participant. Additional items may be purchased if required.

You can also bring along your own item of clothing to print on to - 100% cotton, light coloured fabric is best.

Did you know?

The Chocolate Factory is a secret hideaway for some 30 Hackney creatives and was established 25 years ago by its artist founder, Keith Ashley. It's a beautiful Victorian conversion and complimentary new build set within a flower filled cobbled yard. As a working studio, please allow for a little bit of chaos but plenty of charm. Our next door neighbours are the wonderful Jackson's Art where you'll find a treasure trove of art supplies and print materials to take home and start printing.

Such a fun and creative workshop. Helen is super patient and an artistic inspiration. The workshops take place in her studio which is full of life and colour and a pleasure to spent time in. And, I went home with my very own designed and printed t-shirt! I'm going back to do tea towels next. I would thoroughly recommend it!!

We had a wonderful time with Helen who was very encouraging and helpful and easy to get on with. Her cozy studio was the perfect place to get crafty. We're already thinking about going back now we have the screen printing bug and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Helen was fantastic. Very friendly and explained things clearly . She made the whole process fun and we were all delighted with the tote bags or tea towels we printed. Would highly recommend and hope to do another class with her in the future.

Great introduction to screen printing. It was lovely to meet Helen and learn from her in her beautiful studio. The class allowed for a good balance of creativity/freedom and support - the smaller group size helped us get more out of it. After a dry run, you work on your print for a tea towel or tote bag to take home. Would definitely recommend!

About your host, Helen Rawlinson Design

Helen is a textile designer, based at the Chocolate Factory studios N16, London. She hand screen prints designs for a variety of interior accessories .

She has over 20 years experience in screen printing and with an MA in mixed media/embroidery at the RCA her work also has a stitched quality and is the signature to her original lampshade range. Helen's teaching experience is extensive having worked for several years at the Make Lounge in Islington - she enjoyed teaching screen printing, lampshade making and machine embroidery to a lively, sociable after work crowd. She runs occasional after school and holiday workshops at The Bath House Children's Centre in Hackney and has taken print workshops into local primary schools.

Helen is now pleased to be offering beginners screen printing classes from her fully equipped print studio for both adults and children.

Children and young people are incredibly curious and receptive to the hands on experience of screen printing and Helen is enjoying the opportunity to give back to the younger generation of creatives, eager to learn.

For adult workshops - this is a chance to try something new - have fun with friends and get creative without fear of messing up - screen printing is all about surprise and uncertainty with some amazing results, whether intentional or not and it's all good stuff.

Notes

We will be using A4 and A3 size screens and water based inks for printing in class. Aprons are provided, but please consider wearing clothes/shoes you don't mind getting messy in. You are welcome to bring any drawings and visual references with you to inspire your prints. As we will be using paper stencils to print, please avoid fine lines and small font. Strong black and white images work best. Consider Matisse style cut outs, simple silhouettes and shapes. For evening bookings, you are very welcome to bring your own wine/snacks etc.
