Join this Textile Print Design course and learn how to transform your design ideas into paper stencil motifs for screen printing. You will learn a variety of textile printing techniques and find out how to source fabrics and print materials.
We'll demonstrate a mix of techniques including specialist water based binders and pigments for screen printing onto cotton as well as acid dyes for printing onto silks.
You will use both open screens and screens prepared with mark making and motifs to develop your design ideas.
You'll have the opportunity to experiment with a range of printing techniques including metallic binder, puff binder and flock & foil embellishment techniques.
Please bring items that inspire you and you would like to draw these will form the basis of your designs.
You'll leave with a range of printed samples of your print experiments and at least one final piece of work you have designed and printed yourself, for example scarves, cushion covers or T-shirts. You'll also know how to take the next steps, namely how and where you can continue textile print designing.
Who should attend
Anyone interested in learning a new craft, whether for a hobby or because you're an artist looking to diversify or add to your skills. It could lead you to full or part-time studies in another aspect of textile design.
