Join us for an afternoon and learn how to screen print your own tshirt.
Using silk screens, water based inks and hand cut stencils, you will have the opportunity draw and screen print your own designs or use our ready made designs to create your very own bespoke tshirt. You will also have the option of printing onto a tote bag instead if a tshirt isn’t your thing.
We provide everything you need including designs but if you would like to bring your own, please make sure they are printed onto regular copier paper and in a simple silhouette format which will enable you to cut them into a stencil with a craft knife.
Included in the cost is 1 tshirt or tote bag and you will have the opportunity to print further items during the session should you wish to do so.
If you are looking to get to grips with the lo fi method of screen printing, then this workshop is for you. After spending an afternoon with us, you will leave with the confidence and top tips to start your own DIY printing at home.
These workshops will be held in the club and gallery space at Islington Mill. Please feel free to bring your own butties and refreshments.

The workshops at West Bretton Primary School focused on their expedition to Lesotho in 2015. We made prints inspired by african textiles onto tote bags and tea towels that will be sold to raise funds for the trip. Copies of each printed item were also made so they can also be exhibited in school.
In addition to this, we made prints onto fabric that focused on the contrasting landscape between Wakefield and Lesotho, particularly focusing on trees as this directly relates to the issue of permaculture in Lesotho and the importance of planting trees (the school will be planting trees during their trip).
These fabric prints will be made into two murals, one of which will stay at school and the other will be given as a gift to the exchange school in Lesotho.
Check out some of the prints from Saturday’s workshop!
Sounds From The Other City is coming very soon. Based around Islington Mill and the pubs of Salford, it is a one day extravaganza with some amazing bands and live acts. As the screen printers based at Islington Mill we printed the merchandise for this years festival including some new super sticker packs. All the artwork is by David Bailey and the merch is available on the day and online http://islingtonmill.bigcartel.com/

Check out some of the students work from our most recent 6 week course.
The group came up with some really interesting ideas and approaches which meant for a great range of results.
Our students hail from a variety of backgrounds from designers to photographers to people just starting to dip their toes into creativity. This course is a great introduction into getting hands on and creative.
Come and get involved!
Our next course starts on Tuesday 6th April at 6pm, you can get all the info HERE.
We returned to Holy Cross College in Bury to spend a couple of days working with their AS Level design students.
The prints created were responses to a variety of exam questions that had been set as part of the students course work.
As always, the work produced was of an excellent standard especially for first time screen printers.
We are really looking forward to heading over to the college once they have their print studio installed so we can really get to grips with some more advanced methods to put those guys to the test.
