An opportunity to develop a skills base, exploring a range of silk screen print techniques as well as cold and hot water dyeing, heat transfer, painted and resist methods. Equal emphasis is placed on a broad and open approach to design development. All processes are underpinned by an awareness of the environmental impact of working with cloth, chemicals, energy and water. New students are welcome in the spring and summer terms but, as the course is progressive, beginners in September are encouraged to commit to all three terms of the academic year.
Those with little experience will be taught the foundations of print and dye techniques, enabling them to apply colour in to and on to a variety of cloth substrates. Although the class is process based, equal emphasis is placed on design development through personal research and tutor guidance. Experienced students will pursue personal project work using appropriate techniques and materials. Refresher demonstrations are integral to the course.
Some previous experience is helpful when joining the spring term together with a broad and open approach to learning and design development. A degree of manual dexterity, physical stamina and good command of English are also necessary.
