Tailor-made one-to-one textile print workshop
This workshop will introduce you to a range of easily accessible printing techniques, using both a silk screen and a selection of different mark-making tools. You will explore a range of printing techniques and experiment with pattern, texture, colour, design and composition using thickened procion dyes. The afternoon allows you freedom to explore what you have learnt through your own ideas and design outcomes. You will take home several samples and a silk scarf or length of cloth to make into a cushion, bag or clothing. There will be time for discussion and flexibility of approach as these workshops are tailored to the individual. There will be breaks for lunch and tea and coffee throughout the day. Additional dates are available on enquiry. If you wish to discuss alternative dates or any other queries regarding the course, please click on the 'Ask a Question tab'.
