Screen Printing Workshop
Hannah will be running a 6 week screen printing class in South Shields as part of The Cultural Springs Workshops. It is a beginners workshop and will be an introduction to some simple screen printing methods. Participants will be using a stencilling method to create their own screen print designs and hand pull their won prints on silkscreens. Participants will have the opportunity to design their own two-colour design and print it on a range of papers, cards and canvas bags. This starts March 8th and is on Thursday evenings but is fully booked for this session. Hannah hopes to do more printmaking workshops like this in the near future.

Hannah is working in collaboration with Stevie Ronnie, also from 36 Lime Street. They are working on a children’s book together. Stevie is doing all the writing and Hannah is creating the illustrations. Stevie’s kids and partner Sue (also from 36 Lime Street) are helping and having a lot of input. They come to meetings and help make decisions about the storyline and illustrations.
Hannah currently has work in Nowt Special, an exhibition at Tynebank brewery which is on until March 2nd. Much of the work is quirky and graphic with tattoo design influences. Everyone in the show is from or currently works in the North East. It is an excellent excuse to go and explore the brewery which is a great family friendly venue.
Hannah is working on a large body of work exploring experimental printmaking. Hannah’s work is taking apart some of the traditional printmaking processes and using alternative techniques and materials. The work is often created with the environment in mind using reclaimed materials or low impact materials. Hannah has recently been embracing the mistakes and offcuts created through printmaking processes.
