Fabric Courses


Printed Textiles - Block, mono and screen print.


On this course, you will learn and experiment with a variety of methods to print images onto fabric. Design and make blocks using immediate techniques before moving on to create vinyl and linocut blocks.

Screen print on to fabric using paper cut stencils and creative mark making techniques and learn how to make direct stencils using the photographic exposure process.

Experiment with mark making and layering colour by using the painterly process of Monoprinting onto fabric and use vibrant colour and overprinting to combine techniques together to add texture and depth to your work. Learn how to register to create repeat or placement prints and develop creative ideas to print your own fabrics, bags, tea towels and more.

Please note, it may take more than one course to cover all the techniques offered, depending on how quickly you work. Course groups are small and people work at their own pace on their own projects.

Inks and test fabric are included in the course fee. Please bring your own cotton to print onto. Bags and tea towels are available to buy from the studio.
