Weekly Screen Printing Evening Classes

16 Byron Street, Napier

At long last! A weekly screen printing evening class for adults. You asked for it, so we’ve sorted it!

Join us in the relaxed atmosphere of the CAN, learn a new skill and print away to your heart's content. Lisa will guide you through the whole process of stencil making and printing on paper and fabric, helping you to achieve the results you want, and making sure you have lots of printed goodies to take home.

Cost: Total for 8 classes $200 ($25 per workshop).

You will need to bring:
- An "X-acto" knife or similar (this and the Fiskars brand are available at Warehouse Stationery) plus blades (these need to be pointy for fine cutting)
- If you have one, a cutting mat
- A roll of sticky back plastic

As the course progresses, you might need to purchase some other items, but we will let you know in plenty of time!
