London Craft Week Live Demonstration
with Gemma Waggett
Textile designer Gemma Kay Waggett presents a live
demonstration of one of the oldest printing techniques –
screen-printing – in-store at Heals, Tottenham Court Road.
This handmade process entails the passing of ink or other
printing media through a stencilled mesh stretched around a
frame, with the stencil openings determining the image that
will appear on the base substrate.
Gemma has been screen-printing for over 10 years and will
answer questions about the process, discuss her work, and
show you how to screen print for yourself.
