Led by Xtina from Medway Fine Printers

As part of GENFest 2024...

A screen printing workshop led by Xtina Lamb that is so much fun you will find it hard to stop! Over 150 designs for you to mix and match, including: mermaids, ships, monsters, robots, skulls, stars, flowers, cameras, patterns etc. These lightweight screens are super easy to print with – lay the stencil on top of a T-shirt or tote bag, pull your choice of ink colour across it with a small squeegee, then stand back to admire your print – before grabbing another design and repeating the process. You’ll have 45 minutes to layer up a unique printed textile creation.

This method of screen printing is lighter and easier than with heavy regular silkscreen frames, making it suitable for people with mobility issues, arthritis etc. The workshop can get noisy as people sometimes get excited, but it’s easy to create something without the pressure of having to draw a design. Instructions can be demonstrated non-verbally.

This event is part of

GENFest 2024: Screen Printing Workshop

Sat 29 June


ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
