Screen Printing Fun at The Sail Lofts…

The creative juices were really flowing at The Sail Lofts during October Half Term when we hosted our first ever screen-printing workshop with local artist Dena O’Brien.

These two hands-on workshops proved a real hit with our guests and both sessions were fully booked, offering children and adults a really fun way to learn about screen printing and create some lovely Christmas cards from Dena’s designs.

All the materials were provided and Dena took each group through the basics of screen printing before they began experimenting with the screens. Once they’d honed their skills the group were then given the chance to print twelve lovely Christmas cards that they could take away with them.

Dena, who has a number of prints exhibited in the apartments and The Sail Lofts Studio, is becoming well known for her printmaking and textile design's. She also teaches at her own studio, and at various colleges in Cornwall.

Due to the success of these workshops we’re hopping to run similar classes in our on-site studio in the future so if you have any ideas as to what you’d like to see please do get in touch via email
