Super Stencil Screen-printing

A one day masterclass led by 62 Group Artist Rachael Howard.

This masterclass introduced Rachael Howards’ technique of stencil screen printing and painting with a squeegee. Participants experienced the joy of stencil screen-printing with an intuitive and expressive approach by taking  part in a series of fear free drawing exercises, and created paper stencils to produce energetic and expressive prints.

RCA trained textile artist and designer Rachael Howard is one of our foremost narrative textile artists. She has pioneered a lively mix of embroidery and screen-printing techniques, using graphic figurative images, text and object to tell – often autobiographical – stories of the every day. Rachael has been an exhibiting member of the 62 Group since 1996.

Adults at all levels

I found the drawing freeing up exercises most useful. Lots of ideas for mixing colours on screen and layering.

This workshop has inspired me to draw more and have more confidence with this. It has also made me think about things not having to be perfect.

Good fun. Clear explanation of processes, led into work expertly. Good feedback. A fantastic day.
