Event description

Description

Spend two days of total creativity in beautiful surroundings overlooking the North Downs. Learn the art of pattern design and explore two printmaking techniques to produce your own hand-printed wallpaper and fabric.

After a warm welcome and introductions, we will begin day one by exploring repeat patterns and making sketches using the surrounding area as inspiration. You are also welcome to bring ideas with you in the form of photos, magazines, drawings, books, wallpaper, fabric swatches etc. Working with your initial sketches you'll learn practised methods to create a repeat pattern, transfer your design to a lino block, use tools to carve it and spend the afternoon printing your wallpaper. You will leave with a sample of wallpaper and your linocut to carry on printing at home.

With designs already in mind, during day two you will set-up a screen using a blocking fluid technique and screen print a repeat pattern on your fabric.

The workshop promises to be a fully immersive experience using creativity to connect to the area's natural beauty and landscape. I'll teach you the tricks and skills you'll need and give advice on where and what to buy to carry on printing at home.

You have the option to purchase the screen that you have "set-up", with your design still on it, to take home and carry on printing. When you are ready for a new design the blocking fluid can be washed off and the screen can be re-used. This costs £35. After booking, please email rachel@iprintedthat.com with your request and state your full name and you will recieve a purchase invoice.

Note for attendees: No previous printing experience required. Please bring a light lunch, an apron or painting shirt and a sketch book and pencils. All equipment, inks, plain wallpaper, 1m of fabric, hot drinks and cake are supplied. Tickets are non-refundable.
