Seasonal Screen-printing


It's the most wonderful time of the year!

What better way to celebrate the staff Christmas party than to pour some wine, pull a cracker, and get creative with your colleagues?!

We were so excited to welcome back Ellie from East End Press to host a very merry version of her screen-printing workshop (complete with stockings!).


Designs in mind and craft knives in hand we began cutting our silk screen stencils, then paired up for printing.

We were a particularly peaceful party as we concentrated on our one-of-a-kind masterpieces - not a creature was stirring, not even a...member of staff!



One of the advantages of screen-printing is that you are able to print on a variety of fabrics and surfaces with differing thicknesses of ink. This allows for some very interesting effects, with beautiful nuances in each print.

Ellie was a positively patient host, teaching us to embrace our imperfections (creative or otherwise) and make the most out of what we had.

Flaws are what add character after all!


The workshop was a lucky break for those elves who hadn't been keeping up with their Christmas shopping as we left with armfuls of hand-crafted goodies (although it didn't go quite to plan for a certain someone!).

It's the thought that counts, right?!


Don't worry folks, we aren't just keeping Ellie all for ourselves - we will be having her back in March for another screen-printing sensation.

For now, on behalf of our lovely staff at Miss Katie Cupcake and Elk & Wolf - Merry Christmas everyone! We will see you all in January for another art(ion)-packed year!
