You are warmly invited to join the artists Sarah Stewart and Sarah Keast for an evening talk on approaches to Screen Printing at Gracefield Arts Centre on Thursday 28th July 6.30 to 7.30 pm.

Both artists are members of the South West Scotland Printmakers Group (SWSP) and Upland. They both use screen printing in their creative practice and each artist will outline their approach to the technique with examples from their work.  They will discuss how their approaches differ, which techniques and media they prefer, how they make stencils and also how they deal with some of the challenges of this media.

This talk is in preparation for the planned new screen printing facility at Gracefield Arts Centre which SWSP is hoping to help install in the second half of this year.  Once the screen printing press and wash out booth are complete at Gracefield the artists will run some introductory workshops for South West Scotland Printmakers Members and Gracefield Print room members on screenprinting.

This talk is free for SWSP & Upland members but you must book to attend. Please book here.

Membership of South West Scotland Printmakers costs £10 and will give you free entry to take part in their December exhibition at Gracefield Arts Centre.  Membership is renewed in January each year.

Please contact Emma Varley if you would like to become a member of SWSP - elvarley@yahoo.com

Upland Membership is on a sliding scale from £0 - £30, depending on what stage you are at in your creative development. To find out more about becoming an Upland member please see more info here.

This talk is part of Upland's professional development programme, which is funded by Creative Scotland.
