If you have never screen printed before, this is a fantastic opportunity to experiment with your own designs in an inspiring & spacious studio in the heart of Devon.

No previous experience or artistic ability is required, only a sense of fun and a desire to create. All accompanied by a delicious homemade lunch. 




The course runs from 10am to 4pm and costs £75 per person. 

Once your design is printed, we can also help make it into a product of your choice, for a small extra charge. This could be a range of things, for example cushions, lampshades, napkins, or even Christmas stockings!



Some feedback from one of the workshops:

Below is an illustration of the process involved in creating your own design onto fabric. 


  • Draw your design. Bring an idea with you or plenty of inspiration and help will be provided.


Colour separation

  • You will trace the different colours in your design onto separate pieces of tracing paper. This will create a multi-layered design.


Screen exposure

  • Your design will then be exposed onto the screen, ready for printing!



  • You will then test your screen on paper, ready to print onto your pieces of fabric.

Finished design

  • You'll end the day with some beautiful prints to make into a product of your choice!
