We explore painting and screenprinting on natural fabrics using very simple techniques.
You can make scarves, fabric for clothes , artpieces , quilt making ingredients – anything you wish given the available space and timescale. We also have a heat transfer press for synthetic fabric transformation and for printing with foils.
Carole guides you through the weekend with lots of simple experiments in painting and screenprinting techniques on the first day – so that you can make a personal project with all or any one of the ways of working, on the second day.
No previous experience is needed – just a love of play – mark making, colour and line.
Day one is experimental, and Day two allows the opportunity to complete a more personal project with Carole’s guidance. Add an extra day on the Monday to develop even more if you wish. Working on a variety of silks and cottons you can bring your own fabrics or buy during the weekend from Carole’s stock.
Handouts and suppliers lists are available.
