I attended a Screen Printing Workshop at the Carriage Works in Denbigh with Tara Reid where I learned that Screen Printing is actually not as scary as it seems.  I also feel confident that I could work with Screen Printing at home.

See Screen Printing with Tara Reid for a full review of the day.

After this workshop I purchased screen printing equipment of my own so that I can use this process at home.

Jim O’Raw

A print maker, contributor and in-house artist of People of Print, Jim O’Raw has worked alongside our director, Marcroy Smith, for over half decade. With his distinct style of using fluro colours in a CMYK process, Jim’s artwork promises to be original and provides the feel of looking at faded film-developed photos.

I first discovered screen printing while at the Arts Institute Bournemouth ten years ago. I loved how you could use the process to print on anything from acrylic and cardboard to bubblewrap, glass and carpet underlay. I tried it all. I went on to study at the London College of Printing where I practically lived in the print room. I spent three years playing with halftones, multiplying colours, blends, overprinting and registration. I even tried printing PVA and throwing gold dust down. I thought it was incredible how you could achieve such a high quality of print at a relatively low cost. After graduating, I embarked on a career as a graphic designer, but it wasn’t really for me. So I returned to the squeegee and began printing by own work again before my friends at Birch recommended me to Mark Bloom at Mash Creative. I printed three editions for him and have gone on to print over 100 editions for over 75 clients with more enquiries coming in every day.
