    The workshop was a great success, Rob is a great tutor. We learned the skills needed to make our own stencils from paper / card and plastic sheet. we also learned how to make photo emulsion screens and experimented to learn all the tricks of how to apply the ink. People made their own designs and stencils and printed these onto paper, linen and tee shirts, with amazing results. Awesome experience, I hope we can have another one soon to expand our skills.
