Present Workshops

The Present Workshops are a fully operational screen printing workshop based in the ACAVA Spode Studios. Read below for more information or visit our workshop website here -> www.presentworkshops.com 


Tom and Andy are the primary workshop tutors. Both studied at Staffordshire university and have extensive experience in a number of creative sectors and a passion for the screen printing process. Our aim is to open up the potential for local creatives to get involved with the craft. It is a process with multiple applications whether for T-shirts and other garments to Art prints and ceramic transfers. We invite members of the public in to use our workshop and are always happy to assist with any questions no matter your level of printing experience.

Space on all screen printing workshops are limited, so it is advisable to book a place in advance. Tea, coffee and aprons are also provided although we recommend that participants wear clothing/footwear that they are not too worried about getting ink on.
Print Service

Alternatively we offer an in house printing service. We can print T-shirts, tote bags, art prints and pretty much anything else. We also offer advice, in-house design, colour separation and art-working services. Our prices are extremely competitive and we provide quick turnarounds and reliable communication throughout all our jobs.

We are happy to give a free quote for any printing you may want no matter the size of job.
Print Shop

Present workshop and The Upstairs Gallery have recently launched the Print Club, This is made up of a collective of artists and creatives who have worked with us to produce a series of limited edition screen prints.  This work is then featured on display in our upstairs gallery and available to buy in store or online with the artists receiving commission on the sale.
Other Workshops

We host special one off workshops in a wide variety of creative disciplines. The dates and times of these workshops will be advertised well in advance to ensure you manage to book your place.

Spaces for all workshops will be limited, so tickets will need to be purchased in advance of any event, available in–store and online. Costs, days and times of events vary depending on workshop type. Get in touch to find out more.

Do you run workshops? If you host workshops of any kind then we would love to hear from you.
