1-Year Textile Design and Printmaking -Portfolio Course
Monday18 September – 1 July 2024
9:30am – 12:30pm
Led by Emma Studd with guest tutors Elly Ren & Clare Parry
During this 1-Year Textile Design and Printmaking course you will experiment with a range of printmaking techniques to develop and transform your own drawings or found images into repeat pattern and surface decoration within textile design.
It is a practical, workshop based course that will include linoprint, collagraph, screenprint, blockprint, stencils, monoprinting, devore and heat transfer.
The principles and theories of design and pattern will be introduced through research, the study of contemporary artists and the development of your own personal ideas from the image through mood boards, experimentation, samples, colour ways and final pieces.
The course will also consider the exciting commercial application of these techniques and how designs, repeat pattern and print can be used on products such as cushions, tote bags, t-shirts and scarves.
You will also have the opportunity to complete a personal project at the end of this course which will be exhibited in an end of year show.
