1 Year Textile Design and Printmaking
1 year course with Justyna Medon
Tuesday 21 September 2021 – 19 July 2022
9:30am – 12:30pm
During this 1 year 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 printing with stencils, lino, screen and explore transfer printing techniques including foil and flock, learn about natural dyes and shibori.
The principles and theories of design and pattern will be introduced through research, the study of contemporary print design and the development of your own personal ideas from the image through mood boards, experimentation, samples, colour ways and final fabric samples.
The course will also consider the exciting commercial application of these techniques and allow you to apply placement design and repeat pattern onto products such as lampshades, cushions, tote bags, 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.
