Description:

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.

This was a really interesting course - I enjoyed coming every week and have since started to do my own printing at home! The barn is a beautiful space to work & can;t recommend enough!

I loved this course! Really enjoyed coming each week, although I did have to travel from East London it was wirth it. Learned so many skills, most of which I can keep using at home or others when I return to Print Club. There was a scrumptious cake each week and plenty of teas and coffees throughout. I left with fabric which I have turned into cushions. I'm hoping to start printing cushions to sell online, this course has given me the confidence to get started and take the leap. Can't recommend enough!

Learned the basics of fabric printing, all of which I can keep doing at home. Met some lovely people, only four of us on the course, which meant there was lots of 1-1 attention. The barn and farm make a lovely setting, course supplies and refreshments were generous.

Really interesting course, illustrating all the basics in printing onto fabric, including screen printing, lino & block printing. Enjoyed the small class size and beautiful venue. Plenty of parking and accessible entrance. Highly recommend.
