Explore textile printing with Bec Lewis from Little Brown Dog. This hands-on 4.5 hour workshop will give you an opportunity to create and screen print your own single or multi-layered designs using hand cut stencils and water based inks. You’ll leave with a selection of your own printed fabrics that you can use in future sewing projects as well as your stencils and a new found love of print making.

What’s included:

  • A selection of vintage and thrifted fabrics to print on
  • All print making supplies including silk screens and inks
  • Lots of inspirational books and mags to flick through for design ideas
  • Plenty of guidance and problem solving to work through your design idea/s
  • Morning tea on arrival, a light lunch of Moroccan Peanut Soup and crusty bread!

Please bring:

  • Any of your own fabric or t-shirts you might like to print on (100% cotton is best)
  • An apron or an old shirt to cover your clothes.
  • Some design ideas or inspiration for example sketches, print outs and favourite pics from magazines etc.

If you don’t consider yourself much of an artist you could check out these sites which have lots of copyright free images:

Just remember that images will have to be simplified to print them.
And finally be prepared to get a little bit messy.

Bec Lewis: UPCycler print maker, seamstress, Sunday suburban adventurer!
Bec first became hooked on screen printing after learning the technique during the summer holidays at the age of twelve. For many years she practiced this skill by creating all manner of hand printed presents for her school friends – everything from pillowcases to t-shirts. Bec regards herself as a self taught print maker, although she has attended many workshops to learn the different aspects of screen printing. Bec now predominantly uses photographic screen printing in her own work but she still mixes this up with the hand cut stencil method that she learnt all those years ago.

A degree in Environmental Management along with a personal philosophy grounded in sustainability, informs the direction of Bec’s creative practice. She works predominantly with thrifted, vintage fabrics and ecologically sound materials to create one off and short run garments and homewares under her label little brown dog workshop.
