Simply put screen Printing is a type of printing where you have a framed screen of silk or other fabric which you transfer your design onto using chemicals. Once it has been transferred you spread paint over the image with a squeegee, making sure the areas you don’t want printed are covered up. The image is transferred from the screen onto fabric or paper.
On this page we provide the telephone contact details for a number of educational institutions in the UK that provide screen printing courses. All of the courses that we list provide an opportunity to practice this delicate art for yourself in a fun and social setting. If you are not able to commit enough time to do a series of lessons you may choose to just do a single workshop where you can find out more about screen printing and decide whether it is for you. We have divided the courses by city and given full contact details for each course provider including telephone number, email and postal address.
