Jule Mallett will be demonstrating and introducing us to screen printing at home'at Craft Cafe

Hello Crafters,
This August we will be running, a fabulous Screen Printing Workshop at Craft Cafe.
Artist Jule Mallett will be demonstrating and introducing us to screen printing at home' Explore and experiment with different methods of screen printing on paper which can easily be done at home without the need of specialised equipment.
Working together in small groups, we will create our own stencils and experiment with simple resist printing; explore auto-graphic mark making by painting directly onto a silk screen, use a photo sensitive emulsion border; play with multi coloured squeegee printing and have a go at layering motifs. Screens will be shared as there's a lot to fit in!
Hopefully by the end of the evening you will have an understanding of each method and be able to continue to explore screen print independently at home and have some works of art on paper to take home.
The workshop will run on Thursday 31st August at Craft Cafe in Camberley, 7.30pm to 10.00pm.
The Screen Printing Workshop is £15.00
Please come along wearing old clothes and preferably an apron
(Please comment below to sign up for the workshop by the deadline of the 27th August )
The workshop will be held at St Mary's Church, Park Road, Camberley, GU15 2SR

Kaniez Abdi new website!




For those of you who know me well, you will know that I have been working on my website for the past two years. I am the biggest procrastinator and sometimes things take a lot longer to achieve than you realise or expect. It has been a cathartic experience looking back on my work and career and what I have done and achieved. This website is me and hope you like it!
Take a look it's live

Shah Cheragh is so inspiring and sparkly.

Regardless of your faith, the Shah Cheragh in Iran is a site worthy of reverence. The mosque is adorned with thousands of pieces of glass and tile that turn flickering photons into a radiant reflection of its name, "king of the light." Watch the video.

At our monthly meetings, we will be running a programme of affordable workshops. You will be able to do a taster class, in a skill and technique that you may have wanted to try before, but never had the chance.
