Gocco printing workshop at ShepherdsXtina has two all day print workshops lined up for Gocco fans. Firstly, remember remember to visit Shepherds Falkiners‘ fine paper shop in Bloomsbury on the 5th of November – for a day of Gocco printing using hi-mesh masters and oil based inks. Gocco bulbs will flash like fireworks and ooos and ahhs will ring out at a lovely explosion of prints made from your own artwork.

There will be examples of Gocco work, tips for getting the best results and ideas such as how to re-use damaged screens. You can also try out the squeegee printing method. Shepherds will be supplying fine papers to print on. You’ll take home your screen and prints.
Book via Shepherds 020 7831 1151 or matt@bookbinding.co.uk
£60, max 5 places.

PG-11 Gocco and screen printing kitPart two takes place at Xtina’s studio at Craft Central in Clerkenwell on Sunday 4th December, and promises a day of Gocco screen printing and experimentation. Make screens from your own artwork using the Gocco machine and Riso mesh. Stretch the mesh on a thin plastic frame, then print with a lightweight squeegee and water based screen printing ink.

Try out a thermofax machine to make a screen without using Gocco bulbs, and print with texture screens and hand cut stencils onto cards, paper, notebooks and fabric. Registration techniques and lots of tips will be shared. The screens you make are yours to take home. You can carry on printing with them later with supplies easily bought from art shops, and it’s ideal timing for making Xmas cards or gifts!

Sandwiches, tea and cake are included in the price.
£60, max 6 places
