What will happen during the course?
You will be encouraged to build a textiles development sketchbook in order to effectively document learning processes and design development. You will be shown how to prepare a small portfolio of fabric samples as well as how to effectively transform your ideas into print. You will also have the opportunity to experiment with specialist techniques and binders such as foiling, metallic and puff, to really maximise the various potentials of textile screen printing.
What experience do I need?
This course is perfect for anyone who has completed our six week Beginner’s Course, members of the studio or those with recent experience. Beginner’s Course alumni & Print Clan members are eligible for a £25 discount off their booking.
Equipment and materials such as screens, squeegees, a range of ink colours, specialist binders, chemicals, paper, pens, cutting mats and knives are all included, as well as a sketchbook. Fabric is not provided so you are required to bring fabric for printing along with you - natural fabrics such as a plain cotton or linen give the best results. You can also bring along merchandise to print onto such as totes and cushion covers.
