I run workshops in Edinburgh through The Arienas Collective. I’m currently offering workshops in Screen Printing, Letterpress Printing, Gel Printing and Watercolour. Check The Arienas Collective for upcoming dates!

I have also collaborated on an online workshop with Bookbinding with Cassshowing how to make a gel printed junk journal. This workshop contains full video content you can watch at your leisure, a kit with all the tools and materials you need to make it and an optional live zoom session with Cass and I where we can get to know you and share further ideas about how to develop your journal. Find out more here!

You can also contact me to facilitate workshops for your organisation in any of these areas, or to craft a bespoke session that’s appropriate for your location, numbers and budget. I work to the Scottish Artist Union rates and would require appropriate travel and accommodation expenses outside of Edinburgh. If you think this would work for you, please get in touch.

I have the experience and tools to lead workshops for up to twelve people in mindful mandala drawing, line and wash sketching, lino printing, relaxing watercolour painting and in lectio-divina based drawing. I can take smaller groups in screen printing and letterpress.

About Screen Printing

Screen printing is the process of making images using a metal or wood screen supporting a fine mesh. To make the print, you use some kind of stencil to push ink through the screen and onto paper (or fabric) below. There are several ways you can make a stencil. You can cut one out of paper, and stick it to the screen. This is what I teach in the simplest of screen printing workshops.

To get more detail and a more consistent result, you can create a stencil within the mesh itself, using a photosensitive coating, and exposing that to UV light. This is what I teach in day long workshops at Arienas Collective. There are a couple of options, one for making multi-coloured prints with two or more layers of colour, and one where I share my techniques for applying imitation gold leaf to your prints too.
