Description

On this course, you'll learn that in some ways it's easier to learn basic screen printing techniques on paper rather than printing on to fabrics. Inspired by Modernist geometrics and the current trend for African-inspired patterns, your tutor will lead you through the process of creating a repeat geometric print. You'll start by creating a moodboard as you learn how to accomplish basic screen printing using screen exposures and the art of colour mixing. You'll also receive tips on sourcing wallpaper materials responsibly.

Course Outcomes
You'll leave with several samples and at least one two-metre length of printed wallpaper.

Who Should Attend

Amateurs and designers who want to learn about basic screen printing on to wallpaper. It may be particularly helpful for interior designers who want to understand image or pattern placement in a room.
