Description

This exciting course gives an insight into the skills of hand painting and screenprinting onto a variety of fabrics. You will learn how to devore, dye and print with Procion and Acid print pastes and use transfer paints and papers. You will also have the opportunity to expose a screen. The course aims to teach students of all abilities and levels of experience.

We will provide an introduction to fashion print and hand painting techniques, which will provide the confidence to experiment with a variety of fabrics and the opportunity to develop your own ideas. As these skills are learned, students will be set a project in which they will transfer their designs on to fabric.
