In this jam-packed five week printmaking course, you will be introduced to many techniques for printing your own designs and patterns on fabric. We will begin by explaining setting up a studio space at home, and move on to look at different methods of screenprinting, including thermofax, as well as block printing with Indian woodblock and relief printing with lino stamps. Throughout the course you will be encouraged to experiment with different ink and pattern and develop a set of motifs to use in a final printing project. There will be an emphasis on experimentation and you will learn a multitude of skills so that you can continue printing at home.
You will leave with… fabric printed with an array of your designs that can be used in future projects at home, as well as your completed final project.
Who is this workshop for?
Anyone with an interest in printmaking who would like to learn how to transfer their designs onto fabric. This workshop is ideal for both beginners with no prior experience and those with a basic understanding of printmaking. We begin each session with a demonstration of the skills we will be covering.
All printmaking tools and equipment will be provided in addition to fabric for practising each technique. You are advised to bring along a sketchbook and basic drawing materials and any design ideas or reference materials you have in mind. Please feel free to bring along your own fabric to further experiment with different effects.
