Event description

Description

Over 10 sessions you will develop a personal textile print project and print onto fabric using a combination of paper and photographic silk screen stencils, and block printing. Working from personal imagery, drawings and collage you will develop a sketchbook of ideas and make hand cut paper stencils and printing blocks from foam, lino and other experimental printmaking materials. This term you will also have the opportunity to use a permanent photographic silk screen stencil.

(Please note the course will not include making a photographic silk screen stencil but will tutor you in different ways to make suitable artwork for this purpose- Deborah will then turn your artwork into a permanent screen at her home studio for you to use throughout the course)

There will be time to develop your design ideas through both the silk-screen and block printing processes, learn how to mix textile inks and play with composition, colour, pattern and overprinting. Throughout the course you will be shown the work of inspirational artists and designers and work towards a final printed textile piece such as a length of fabric, bag, t-shirt or tea towel, or a series of experimental samples.

Printed Textiles 3 is suitable for both beginners, continuing students and those with previous experience.

It is part of a three term course which builds on different textile print techniques and design approaches, but can be taken on its own.

Previous students have used the course to rekindle their creative practice, build a textile portfolio for university arts applications, learn new skills and meet like-minded people.

Most materials are supplied although students will need to bring the following materials along:

Plain white or lightly coloured linen/cotton 2 meters (which could be a repurposed piece of cloth such as a sheet or unpicked garment)
Or plain cotton/linen tote bag, or t-towel x 5
Or mixture of each
Small pieces/scraps of plain cotton/linen fabric for testing
A4/3 hardback sketchbook
Black fine liner/ Black marker pens

Costs: £185
Days: 10 Monday evenings
Times: 18:00 - 21:00
Dates: 29 April - 15 July (no class 6 & 27 May)
Room: Red
Maximum: 10

Deborah studied Illustration at Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and went on to work as a designer. In 2004 she qualified as a teacher and taught graphic communication for ten years. In 2016 she gained an MA in Textiles from Chelsea College of Art. She works from her studio in Sussex where she makes textiles, collages, prints and drawings. Whether working with paper or textiles she enjoys the interplay of colour, shape and the spaces in-between. Her work reflects her interest in the cross over between art, craft and design. She teaches courses and workshops in Sussex and beyond.
