Spencer from Petting Zoo Prints might be best known to some for his beautiful gig posters. He has previously illustrated for artists like Kurt Vile, Alabama Shakes, Bat For Lashes and The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. Over the next few months, he is holding a number of beginners’ screen printing courses at his studio in The Hotwalls in Old Portsmouth.
These are a great introduction or refresher session that will provide a brief but informative insight into the history of the medium, a demonstration of several fundamental techniques, and hands-on participation. You will be able to take home your work from the session. All materials will be provided and you are advised not to wear your finest clothes and you should wear something that you don’t mind getting a little inky. Each session will be held at Spencer’s workshop in the Hotwalls at a cost of £35 per person and will last for two hours.
This Thursday evening’s session is fully booked but other dates are listed below. You can book your place on any of the courses below by emailing Spencer on [email protected]. I strongly recommend booking early as these are likely to sell out.
