For everybody interested in learning the stencil printing techniques that I have developed I give online workshops and courses.  I teach  a complete course (7.5 hours over 3 days) in stencil printing that starts at beginner level and then goes on to teach you all I know about stencil printing and the basics of pattern making with stencils. If you have already done any of my courses there are more advanced workshops.

 

Please look at the FAQ (frequently asked questions) to find out more about the workshops and the supplies needed.

Advanced workshops 

 

2 lesson workshop on In depth pattern design for stencil printing

 

This workshop is most of all meant for people who have done the Complete Stencil Printing Course, but if you have done the Getting Started in Stencil Printing workshop, both of my Skillshare classes, or my in person workshops and feel confident of having mastered all the basic techniques you can join this workshop too. The workshop will consist of 2 lessons of 3 hours each. 

 

In this workshop you will learn:

  • How to design different kinds of basic pattern repeats (block repeat, half drop repeat, half brick repeat) by hand and how to use these repeats in stencil printing.

  • How to use more unusual pattern tiles (like ogees, scales, diamonds, trapeziums etc) in your repeats and how to execute patterns made with these in stencil printing.

With this workshop you will learn to create an interesting flow in your patterns. Although the workshop will go into geometrical shapes, no background in geometry or talent for it is necessary at all.

 

This workshop will come with a reader that explains all the different ways of making a pattern and that you can refer to after the workshop.

€ 130,- (min. 4 students max. 6).

Planned courses:

May 11th and 25th at 4 PM Dutch time (sold out)

I'm taking registrations for this workshop at a later date, which will be planned as soon as there are enough registrations.

3 hour workshop in designing and stencil printing floral/botanical prints and patterns 

 

This workshop is meant for those of you who are interested in diversifying your floral and other nature inspired prints and patterns. Especially with floral prints it is very easy to get into a rut and make variations of the same florals over and over. In the workshop we take nature’s inspiration to create interesting designs. It is also about the stencil printing techniques that you can use to create floral designs and patterns.

Although we will work from hand drawn sketches a talent for drawing is not at all necessary, an interest in exploring your natural inspiration is. Planning of the workshop will start as soon as enough people have applied (a minimum of 4 people).

 

In this workshop you will learn:

  • How to look at your nature inspiration and use what you see in your designs

  • How to transform a basic sketch into a design for a floral motif

  • How to cut your stencils using layering to achieve more complex prints

  • How to use tips and tricks to achieve an interesting or more complex floral print.

 

This workshop will come with a reader that goes into ways you can use your inspiration to make a print design and the techniques that I often use for my floral prints.

€ 65,- (min. 4 students max. 6).

Planned workshop May 3rd 7 PM (sold out),

I'm taking registrations for this workshop at a later date, which will be planned as soon as there are enough registrations.

What students are saying: 

Pauline’s workshops are fantastic! She is a lovely teacher - warm and generous, and very respectful of her students. Her Zoom workshops are incredibly well organised and informative, so we were able to relax and enjoy the process, whilst still learning a lot. And her followup information all fantastic. As someone who teaches printmaking to others, often, these workshops nourished me both as a teacher and an artist. Simone

 

I joined Pauline’s 3-week stencil workshop as part of a group of printmakers from Australia. Pauline is a wonderful (and patient!) teacher. I really appreciated the peaceful, inspiring and focused atmosphere she was able to create – even over Zoom! I will definitely be using the techniques and ideas developed in the workshop in my textile printing.

Pauline’s approach was excellent - techniques were clearly explained and demonstrated, with encouragement given every step of the way. I liked how we were given some time to explore on our own, then brought back as a class to share our progress and view the next steps. 2 and a half hours is also a great duration for the workshop - long enough to get stuck in but not too long to get tired or run out of brushes! Pauline is a lovely, positive and gentle teacher. Lucy

 

Pauline was not only extremely well organised with her teaching approach, but very generous with her time, expertise and patience.  Pauline’s comprehensive notes reflected the teaching content perfectly. The course was a lot of fun, yielding such lovely results so quickly. I look forward to thinking about how to incorporate what I have learned into other projects I might undertake over time. Monique
