Fashion Print Design for 16 to 18 Year Olds Short Course

Course description

This course takes students from practical idea development on decoration and embellishment in Fashion design, to develop personal ideas through the medium of screen printing. With this understanding and knowledge in place students will create and print component pieces to be constructed (on paper or/and fabric) to the body as a wearable embellished garment resulting in three-dimensional designs.

You will work and develop ideas collaboratively, with students from different backgrounds. Students will explore the process in the spirit of Central Saint Martins, where the focus is on the process and personal and explorative approach is celebrated.
