What our students say…

“I enjoyed the course so much the first time that I have just completed it for the second time. The course style is informal & informative. Sally is a great tutor. She encourages and recognises individual styles and strengths and helps when needed but also gives each student confidence to work independently.”

“I’m a graphic designer and was looking for a way to widen my skill set and the course was a perfect introduction to a new way of printing. Not only that, it was really good, hands-on fun and engaging. It gave me so much inspiration for further projects that I didn’t want it to end.”

“I have just finished the course and absolutely loved it! I didn’t have any previous printing experience but I have learned so much in such a short space of time. I feel well equipped and armed with enough skills to be able to set up my own basic screen printing workshop at home. The sessions were super organised and the atmosphere was really friendly and relaxed. Loved it!”

“I really enjoyed the screen printing course. Sally was fab, she’s really friendly and explains the process in such a way, it’s really easy to understand. I loved every moment of it and I got to produce some really good work. If you’re interested in screen printing, then this course is definitely for you.”
