This course will be delivered by our new tutor, Vicky Putler from Thorody, who joins us to offer a range of printing and textile courses.
The course will introduce the students to some practical block-printing and design techniques. The focus of the course will be to look at repeat pattern and to allow students to develop their own project and design and print a 1 colour repeating pattern using the block printing techniques learnt.
In the first week students will get to print their own T-towel using ready cut blocks. In the weeks that follow students will create their own design and make their own printing block. They will then be able to print a repeating block pattern on to a piece of fabric of their choice, suitable for a small cushion or small upholstery project.
We will look at simple to more complex ways of making a repeat pattern: spot repeats, tessellations, rotations, geometrics, florals. Inspiration will come from textile designers Sonia Delaunay, Josef Frank, William Morris, Thorody and others.
