5 week Guide to Textile Design & Printing
Tuesday 2 November – 30 November 2021
This course introduces you to screen printing on fabric, working with colour and producing designs from your own ideas. You will use paper stencils to build up fabric designs in multi coloured layers and we will be using pigments and dyes. You will start with simple ideas to understand the process, the studio and equipment and then build up to more complex design and pattern making. Working at your own pace, you will create fabrics that you can use to make products such as cushions, bags and tea towels as well as a starting point for a stitching or quilting project.
Anne Haworth trained as a textile designer with a specific interest in relief printing. She creates monotypes, collographs, cardcuts, woodcuts and linocuts on paper and also transfers them into screen prints on cloth. Anne creates bold, playful images that reflect her love of surface pattern and design. She produces items such as handbags, cushion covers, tea cosy’s, hats, tea towels and aprons and has her own label, ‘curious cloth’. She is a tutor at the Gloucestershire Print Cooperative in Stroud.
