This spring join textile artist Deborah Manson for this six week course which will introduce you to design, colour and print for textiles using experimental block printing techniques.
The course will allow you time to work on a personal textile project inspired by imagery generated in the first session, build up a sketchbook and learn design techniques to develop a series of sample ideas and work towards a final piece.
Make a series of handmade printing blocks from foam, lino, erasers and other experimental printing materials such as discarded packaging and develop your design through the printing process, playing with pattern, composition and overprinting.
The focus will be on print for interiors and you’ll work towards printing a cushion cover, table runner, tea towel, or a printed placement. Throughout the course Deborah will introduce you to inspirational artist and designers work and encourage a playful approach to making.
The course is aimed at beginners as well as those with previous experience of art and design.
Most materials will be provided but please bring the following:
linen/cotton- aprox 2 mtrs
Or plain t-towel x 4
Blank cushion cover
Or a mixture of each
Small pieces of plain light and dark colored cotton/linen fabric for testing
Your own apron
