These screens can be used to print onto fabrics, paper or polymer. We will be printing onto polymer and the student has the choice of making a piece of jewellery, a journal plate cover or piece of homeware.

There is no pressure to make a finished piece in the class should the student prefer to make several printed sheets of polymer which can be stored for many months before being applied to an end use. The Tutor – Kathy Geurts: Kathy is a mixed media artisan, creating, selling, and exhibiting her own range of jewellery and objets d’art under the Studio Amara brand, a fusion of design styles, techniques and materials resulting in one-off designs.
