Children's Screen Printing - Matisse Style!

This is one truly colourful and creative experience for your child. They'll be exploring Matisse's art, before designing and screen printing their own Matisse-inspired t-shirt or tote bag. It will be a real beauty!

Your child will be joining designer and screen printer Steph in her studio on Bristol's Harbourside.

What's screen printing?

Screen printing is a creative process where you transfer a stencilled design onto a flat surface using a mesh screen, ink and a squeegee. It's a super fun one to learn - your host, a screen printer and primary school teacher is excited to share this skill with others.

What to expect:

  • A creative workshop for children aged 7-12 years old
  • A hands-on introduction to the screen printing process and tools
  • A look at the work of Matisse, focusing on his cut-outs
  • A chance to mix colours, prepare stencils and get ready to print
  • All materials are included

Your child will finish the day with either a tote bag or t-shirt that they can use or wear. They can proudly say they have designed and printed it themselves!

Nice to know:

Steph is a fully qualified primary school teacher and DBS registered. Children are supervised at all times. Steph is happy for you to leave your child while the workshop is taking place.

Age restrictions: 7+
