Plymouth College of Art - 5 Week Printed Textile Design for Beginners and I...
Tue, 25 Apr 2017, 18:00 – Tue, 23 May 2017, 21:00 BST
This five week beginners/improvers class will give both beginners an opportunity to learn the skills to screen print using both paper cut and photo stencils. For improvers it will offer the opportunity to consolidate the knowledge they already have and to have the time and space to push their work further and follow a personal project. During the course there will also be the opportunity for all students to do some indigo dyeing using the Japanese shibori techniques of folding and tying cloth. Indigo dyed cloth can be further embellished using metallic inks and screen printing techniques.
