Drawn to Print with Fraser Taylor

About Drawn to Print with Fraser Taylor

You will investigate both silk-screen and mono-printing techniques and how they can be used to create a single image and repeat pattern. An experimental approach will be encouraged and you will explore scale, layering and colour. As well as engaging in the physical act of making there will constructive individual and group critiques enabling you to identify and develop a personal and innovative body of work.

What will happen during the course?
Day 1: You are encouraged to bring drawings, sketches or images which will prompt a discussion about the appropriateness of image and how best to transfer onto cloth. Marks, lines, shapes will de drawn directly onto acetate, using a range of opaque materials, before being transferred onto screens. This will allow for a wide range of experimentation on cloth, investigating placement and layering. You will also explore mono-printing which does not require a screen.

Allowing time for experimentation will be vital during this first day as this will provide many ideas which can be developed. The end of day one we will conclude in a group review discussing the work produced and how best to develop a strategy for day two.

Day 2: You will experiment with transparent and opaque pigments printing on white and coloured cotton. Demonstrations will be given on how an image can be put into repeat and how that can be transferred onto cloth and printed as yardage. Through discussion you will identify what interests you and the remainder of the workshop will allow you to print a length of fabric which satisfies your goals. The intention, purpose and the final use of your printed cloth will also be an important part of our conversation. At the end of the workshop we will have our concluding critique which will constructively allow you to share your experience and provide ideas on how to advance your practice.

What experience do I need?
This is a course for creatives with a passion for printed textiles. You do not need any previous experience but be ready to experiment and learn from Fraser’s wealth of experience in textile printing. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain an insight into Fraser’s practice, whilst learning new techniques and immersing yourself in making.

Your tutor:
Fraser Taylor studied Printed Textiles at Glasgow School of Art and the Royal College of Art. He co-founded The Cloth, a creative studio focused on contemporary textile design and production. Since 1983 he has developed an interdisciplinary art practice and exhibited internationally, and his projects have included innovative collaborations with visual artists, designers, and contemporary dance. As an educator he has lectured at leading fine art and design institutions, and from 2001 until 2017 was a Visiting Artist and Adjunct Full Professor in the Department of Fiber and Material Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In 2017 he was awarded an Honorary Professorship from Glasgow School of Art, University of Glasgow and co-founded The Textile Collective.

Equipment Provided:
Equipment and materials such as screens, squeegees, a range of ink colours, binders, chemicals, paper, pens, brushes, cutting mats and knives are all included. Fabric is not provided so you are required to bring fabric for printing along with you - we advise you to bring a minimum of 4 meters of white cotton and 2 meters of a dark colour. You may want to take notes and sketch out ideas in a sketchbook, so we recommend that you bring one along.

If the course has to be cancelled due to reasons related to Covid-19 you will be offered a full refund, or the option to attend on a rescheduled date.
