Family Fun – Two Day Screen Printing Course

One of my two day screen printing courses this Summer has been with a lovely family (mum and two daughters), they had a great time learning to screen print whilst spending time together. They all produced some great prints, below is a selection of what they produced.

“Thank you so much for a great two days. We learned so much and were very pleased with what we did. It is great to learn in a small group so that everyone can get on at their own pace and I am sure that with your notes we will be able to do some printing at home.”

If you are interested in attending one of my screen printing courses, please take a look at my workshops: or get in touch via 07889119907 or and please be aware that I will only be running these until the end of the year as I will be going on maternity leave at the end of December.

” I had been trying to find a screen printing course for some time before discovering Paula’s 2 day course, and what a fabulous 2 days we had. I learnt so much and now have enough confidence to do my own prints at home, enjoying every moment. Paula is patient, encouraging and inspirational, can’t recommend her enough.” Sarah Harmer

“Paula, A huge thanks for a really excellent course!
Everything about it was just right : you didn’t rush us, you shared your resources with generosity, you made us all feel ‘able’ , you plied us with tea and carrot cake and really I wouldn’t have changed a thing.
Two days was the right length of course for me and I think it was excellent value….I couldn’t believe I got the three screens as well!
I wholeheartedly recommend the course and hope our paths cross again.
Thank you and very best of wishes to you,
Izzi Ellerby x”
