    Learn skills in graphic design and printing in this full day workshop for high-school students.

    Do you have your own club, group, band or brand? Or are you interested in graphic design? This workshop is all about creating your own logo, insignia or emblem using a range of cool old school design and printing techniques.

    With our experienced tutor, design a logo that reflects the brand you want to create a visual mark for. You’ll sketch up your logo design by hand and learn how to streamline your sketch to create a graphic design that can be used to print on your own wearable gear and bag.

    Using thermal screen print you’ll transfer your design onto a t-shirt* and tote bag. Thermal screen printing is an awesome way to create professional looking textile prints and effortlessly transfer your design onto fabric.

    We’ll also explore block printing techniques. You’ll learn how to hand-cut your logo into a rubber block to create a cool personalised stamp that you can use to print stickers, seals or labels.

    This is a fabulous opportunity to create a range of personalised branded merchandise.
