The Hands-On Cove Park Holiday Art Club offers a blast of creativity every day!
Prints of Play! is for children aged 8-11 interested in art, experimenting with colour, shape, texture and pattern. During a course of four daily sessions, 09:30-11:30 from Monday 17 - Thursday 20 October 2016, children will experiment with ideas around the theme of ‘play’ to create a series of quick, inspirational paper collages that will be used to inform a stencil design to print one or more t-shirt designs that they can go on to wear.
Led by textile designer Laura Spring, Prints of Play! offers an experimental space where children learn to explore the processes involved in print and get to create their own unique design. They will learn skills in printmaking, colour, composition and collage. The week will begin with some fun games to get everyone thinking about 'play' ready for printing.
Laura Spring is a textile designer/maker living and working in Glasgow creating bold graphic print designs that are transformed through screen and digital print into fashion accessories, homeware and stationery. In late 2011 after a summer craft residency at Cove Park Laura established her own eponymous label and print studio and took her first collections to London. With an enormous love for colour, print, pattern and process, Laura aims to create products and designs based around these ideals. Bold patterns mixed with bright colours transformed into beautifully crafted products underpin Laura’s work.
Please note, Prints of Play! will take place in the Artist Centre. If you have any queries about access please contact Cove Park in advance.
Prints of Play! is part of Hands-On Cove Park, a programme of creative events, workshops and talks for people in Argyll & Bute. Find out more about the programme and sign up for updates here and see details of current activities here.
