What do you need?
All the materials for the workshops and subsequent group projects will be

printing ink so overalls / apron / work clothes are essential. If you suffer from
skin allergies please notify staff, protective gloves etc. are available.
It is essential that you attend both days of the workshop. There is no
opportunity in the tight schedule for revision and repetition!
We had a morning introduction with Susan Addams in Fine Art, on the third floor. We learned about colour wheel, primary and complimentary  colours and had to mix a primary with its complimentary colour with acrylic paint, ready to screen print the next day.

I went with a blue-based green and so my complimentary colour was a very pale orange.
