Book Tickets

Using Sonia Shiel's exhibition Medusa in Pieces as inspiration, we will engage in a one-day screen-printing workshop. This workshop is suitable for beginners and will cover various screen-printing techniques.

Participants will learn about colour theory, generate design ideas for their prints and develop these into a final design. They will then break down these designs to layers and create stencils to create their prints.

What to expect: We will use simple design techniques to plan and create our own unique piece of wall art. We will use the gallery exhibit as inspiration. No drawing or art experience is necessary. This will suit all levels.

What to bring: Textiles to print on. White / solid light colours are best, old bed sheets/ t-shirts or totebags work well.

All other materials will be provided.

This workshop will be facilitated by artist Siobhán Jordan. Siobhán is a visual artist from Carlow.
