Screenprinting is a most versatile and expressive printmaking technique and offers exciting opportunities for colour work. Michael does not use photographic methods, instead he specialises in working directly on screens, using his superb sketchbooks as reference. He encourages a painterly approach and demonstrates a wealth of mark-making techniques. Michael Carlo has run highly successful courses in screenprinting for many years.
Educated at the Royal College of Art, his own prints focus on the landscape around his home in Suffolk. Michael’s working methods focus on mark-making, composition and colour.

Thomas Gainsborough (1727-88) was born in Sudbury and baptised at the Independent Meeting-House in Friars Street on 14 May 1727, the fifth son and ninth child of John and Mary Gainsborough. In 1958, Gainsborough’s House Society was formed to purchase the house and establish it as a centre for Thomas Gainsborough. The Museum opened to the public in 1961 and has remained open for over 50 years. The beautiful historic garden at the heart of Gainsborough’s House is maintained by a devoted body of volunteers, who garden exclusively with plants that were available in Gainsborough’s lifetime.
