Join us this Spring with textile artist Deborah Manson and artist Kirsten Norbury for this exciting textile printing course.
Over six sessions children will take inspiration from the colourful work of painters Patrick Heron and David Hockney and learn how to print onto fabric using two different printing techniques: transfer printing with the heat press and block printing.
Children will be encouraged to experiment with mark making, painting and collage using transfer dyes and explore design, colour and pattern through block printing with handmade printing blocks using foam, lino and other experimental materials such as packaging.
You will work towards printing, making and flying a kite and printing a drawstring PE bag.
The focus will be on learning all about printing, getting inspired by artists and gaining new artist skills in a fun and creative environment.
