Screen print workshop

Unassumingly tucked away in the arches underneath Peckham Rye station is Peckham Print Studio. I spent a full day workshop learning about the technique of screen printing, led by the incredibly enthusiastic Hugh - "oh man, I'm well engaged!" His love for print is infectious and I was impressed at how much information he passed on to us in the 6 hours that we were with him.

The day started with us handing over our artwork and printing out 'positves'. As hinted last week, I created a brush lettered piece reading 'stay curious always' which is advice I will try to install in my little girl Poppy. We were then guided through each process and then let loose making our own prints. You can see the results here.

For £60, you come away with a head full of knowledge and ten of your very own screen prints. A perfect way to spend an afternoon, I'd say.
