What you will do
2 hour workshop
Try your hand at screen printing in this class designed to give you an introduction to the art form and let you learn the techniques of printing. Learn how to create layers and images through both paper and photo stencils.
In the class you will be able to select an image that you want to create from a range of silkscreens and colours and get help from professional artists, Jairo Zaldua and Nicola Jane Green, to turn it into a unique artwork to take home with you.
Suitable for families and adult-supervised children.
Jairo and Nicola have been practising their craft in east London for many years and they have sought to free the medium of printmaking from its usual conventions and bring it to greater life. They have previously run workshops for Sadler's Wells, Hackney Wicked, E17 Art Trail, Hackney Museum, The London Illustration Fair, Granary Square, Islington Arts Factory and the Geffrye Museum.
This workshop is organised by Cream Athens in line with our major exhibition called Whipped, showcasing 24 artists at the Coningsby Gallery in Goodge street, London. This year’s exhibition aims to explore nowness and the issues of contemporary culture, the next stage of the evolution.
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.

Empowerment through art and visual pleasure are the key elements of CREAM's aesthetic. Through this ethos, CREAM harnesses the power of art, to excite and to awaken.
We support emerging and established artists and offer development opportunities to individuals within our creative community.
