A rare opportunity to work with Kelly Stewart, catch some of her infectious energy and learn her individual approach to screenprinting.
Kelly studied illustration in Sydney before moving to Edinburgh in 2000. It was while studying at university where she was first introduced to screenprinting but it wasn't until she discovered Edinburgh Printmakers back in 2001 that she realised screenprinting could become a career path and has been a dedicated member ever since.
The process of screenprinting allows Kelly endless possibilities when combining layers of drawings, handwritten text and found textures in which she uses to create limited edition prints of European cityscapes, boats, landscapes and animals.

Please note that this course is not intended as a stand-alone access course.
As this is a masterclass focusing on artists approach to the medium, there is less instruction in all the basic processes, we do lots of the preparation for you and streamline the process so you get a finished print at the end of the weekend. This does mean unless you have good previous screenprinting experience, you will need more training before you are self-sufficient in this process and are able to work in the studio without assistance.
To use Edinburgh Printmakers open access studio facilities, you will need to attend a weekend course or have some 1-1 training or an induction before becoming an associate member. How much further training is required is based on each individual’s previous printmaking experience.
