Screen-printing could be your new autumn hobby – here’s an evening class, starting soon
Looking for a new hobby this autumn?
If you’ve always fancied having a go at screen-printing, artist Emma O’Hara will be taking a small group through the entire process during a six-week evening workshop at Cork Printmakers in September.
The Wexford-born, Cork-based printmaker, who takes inspiration from everyday encounters with landscape, architecture and the urban environment in her own work, will lead the course every Thursday (7pm – 10pm) starting on September 24th, 2020.

Participants will learn how to set up their workspaces, the basics of the medium, and how to handle printing equipment and tools – it’s the perfect excuse to take some time for yourself and unleash some creativity as the evenings grow darker.
“Participants prepare and edit photographic or hand-drawn imagery, then coat and expose a screen,” explain Cork Printmakers.
“Mono-printing and photo-screen stencilling techniques are covered, including four-colour separation and tru-grain. Experimentation with layering colour, blending, and overprinting methods is also covered.”
Everyone finishes the course having created a series of prints – just in time to gift them to someone special for Christmas too.
The course cost is €300 and you can book your place here.
