Learn to Screen Print - November

Our comprehensive course covers all the essentials for the rookie screen printer; including coating and exposing a screen using the photo emulsion technique, two colour separation, registration and the delicate art of handling a squeegee correctly.

WEEK ONE

Our first of four sessions, the first week we look at design and colour separation. Whether you've brought your completed design with you or you haven't got a clue what you want to produce, we'll guide you through the process either by hand or in Photoshop.

WEEK TWO

On the second evening of the course, you'll learn how to degrease, coat and expose your screen, as well as having a little go at a stencil screen print, just for fun!

WEEK THREE

Start printing!

Participants use this week to get to grips with their squeegee technique and start to feel confident with ink. Discover the secrets of registration and test out colour combinations ready for your final prints next week!

WEEK FOUR

In this final week you'll print your final four items, supplied by us, as well as some more if you want them.  You can bring some t-shirts to print for your friends, fabric for cushions or you can buy paper and textiles here at The Egg Factory.

How to be a Craftivist - the art of gentle protest Book Launch

We are proud to welcome Sarah Corbett back to The Egg Factory for an evening of lively discussion with Helen Meller, Director of the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival and to launch her new book How to be a Craftivist.

book cover.jpg

In these times of social, political and economic uncertainty, a new handbook is offering citizens the opportunity to take part in a quiet but powerful form of activism that provokes collaboration and conversation in place of division and conflict.

How to be a Craftivist: The Art of Gentle Protest has been designed to help people use craftivism (craft + activism) to thread love, humility and beauty through their activism instead of hate, ugliness or aggression.

Sarah will be available to sign copies of the book before and after the event.

7pm arrival for a 7.30pm start, with drinks available from our pop-up bar!
