WHAT YOU WILL GAIN FROM A WORKSHOP WITH INGRID
Developed with her teacher training, Ingrid’s screen printing workshops offer an option to suit everyone’s needs and creativity. From a first time screen printer, to someone building on previous experience taking up the opportunity to work one-on-one with Ingrid in her personal studio, there is something to suit teenagers and adults alike. And thanks to the support of an Auckland Community Arts Grant, our offsite courses bring increased affordability of small group workshops too.
Every course begins with building understanding of design principles. From creating positive and negative stencils, through to registration and the use of colour. These techniques support students to take designs through to a more complex form incorporating multiple colours and pattern repeats. Techniques such as layering, colour merging and using mixed media disciplines help students extend and add interest to their designs. The cricut machine is also used, allowing digital designs to be used to created more detailed stencils mechanically.
To get the most out of the courses, we encourage you to think about a project prior to the course and have some designs as starters. As seen in our student feedback, these courses are fun, achievable and give you the empowerment to design something that is unique to you!
The key with screen printing is there are no real right or wrongs and the more you experiment the more fun it is!
