Monday, Tuesdays and Wednesdays we offer screenprinting workshops in our shop space. There are 3 spaces for each workshop running from 10am to 2.30pm and they are £55 per person.
You will be introduced to the basic principles of screenprinting, explaining the different ways to create a screen from cutting stencils, to using photo emulsion. Depending on the kind of images you are interested in and the surface you want to print on, we can advise and guide you through to making a screenprint on paper, or a tote bag, or tshirt.

If you book three spaces it will be exclusively your group - Sometimes only one person books a space and they end up with a 1:1 lesson - whichever combination, we try and make it creatively fun and informative session and it usually involves chocolate hobnobs at some point - bring your own lunch, there is always a point to break when waiting for ink to dry between layers, or for a screen to dry. We can provide drinks.

‘We went for a screenprinting workshop at Salty's Studio this week and it was brilliant - definitely recommend to anyone interested in printing or if you just fancy 3 hours of switching off and being creative. Sandra did a fantastic job of running the whole thing - with coffee and biscuits included! We all really enjoyed it and also love the shop. Thank you!’

‘We had the best morning doing a screen print workshop at Salty’s studio! Sandra was amazing- helping both to inspire us and being patient when we made mistakes! The quality of everything- from the teaching to the materials, was top level. I can’t recommend highly enough. Very much looking forward to coming again soon for the same workshop!! Thank you so much!! What a treat’
