Exciting news!! The Egg Factory in Hebden Bridge have set up screen printing facilities and are offering monthly screen printing workshops and access to their facilities by the day or half day. Annual membership is required to access the facilities (not for the courses though) however membership does help support them and all the work they do. Which is a lot, it’s a creative co-working space, offers courses, events and workshops, use of facilities (not just screen printing) and is just an all round good egg!!
I’m rather pleased about the screen printing as it’s something I’ve dabbled in over the years. A few of the upcycled wallets have some small screen printed designs on, but it’s not something I’ve added to many of my garments. I’d quite like to do some larger designs. screen printing isn’t always suitable for clothing as it does add rigidity to the fabric, but I think a few bags or jackets, or the odd pocket could certainly be enhanced. In the meantime do check out the Egg Factory, and here’s one of my upcycled screen printed wallets….
