We are truly addicted to printing. Especially to hand screen printing, but not only. We are fascinated by the possibilities that stand behind the craft and we want to share our passion.
Creativity is not something you are born with, you can develop it. You just need to try and practice.
The main force behind the hand screen printing workshops is Justyna Medon, professional surface pattern designer, well known for her vivid and sophisticated hand-drawn patterns which she prints on wallpapers and textiles.
With years of experience and passion for experimenting, she’s broadening her knowledge and exploring the world of printing. A few years ago Justyna decided to share her vast knowledge of and passion for printing with people who might be interested in it. Knowing so much about it, few years ago decided to share her passion with others. Since then, she’s been running many one day workshops for amateurs, few 6-week sessions in Folk House and SPIKE Island Print Studio, she was a guest lecturer at colleges running a few one day and two 2-week intensive courses for students.
Her second edition of one year in textile printing in SPIKE Island was fully booked 4 months before the starting date.
Well known for her patience, openness and positive attitude she infects others with her love of printing.
After her workshops, you won’t look at any plane shirt or cushion in the same way…
She has got an incredible ability to unleash a potential in everyone. Her explorative nature in printing is reflected in her work with students. She pays attention to every person who attends to her workshops and finds a way to help them find this magical spark, which they thought faded or was never there.
Workshops are open to people of all ages and skills. We run workshops in small (3-6 attendees) and large groups (8-16 attendees). Justyna runs the workshop on her own or with the help of one more tutor depending on the skillset and number of people attending.

If you are familiar with hand screen printing but don’t have access to facilities where you can expose the screen and print. You’re in the right place.
We offer 4-hour printing jam sessions during which you can print as much as you want on every type of garment or paper you have.
The week before the jam session you will have to send 4 designs so we will have time to expose a screen which you will use during the session.
If you wish to have more than one screen you can book an extra one (additional cost depending on the size of the screen).
We know that Christmas time is coming soon and many people would like to go the extra mile and instead of buying a present, want to give something special and customised.
We will run themed workshops where during 2, 4 or 6-hour sessions you will be able to print on ready-made garments like a scarf, cushion, t-shirt or just a piece of textile you want to change into something special.
We will show you techniques which you can later use at home (stencil, lino), or ones which may need more advanced equipment (screen printing). During a workshop you will be able to print at least one big item or or few smaller ones, depending on the theme.
The type of printing technique, patterns (if supplied) and garment will be described in the workshop listing.
We will also have printing jam sessions when you can bring your own garments and print as much as you can during a 4-hour session (only for people with basic screen printing knowledge).
