On this exciting one day course you will learn how to hand print onto fabric!
We will cover a range of simple printing techniques including, Hoop printing using a blocking out method, Screen printing with paper stencils, and also foam stamping.
Experiment with each different print technique to find and develop your own style. Each student will be taken through the design process of choosing suitable imagery and how to cut a successful stencil. Floating shapes and positive, negative options will also be covered. You will come away with a printed Tote bag and enough printed fabric to make a cushion cover and the skills needed to create your own hand printed designs at home. You will also be able to keep your hoop and design.
