Screen print, Block print and Monoprint onto Fabric with Cath Bristow
Learn to print images onto fabric and experiment using a variety of methods to print images onto fabric. Develop creative ideas to print your own fabrics, bags, tea towels, t-shirts and more.
On this course you will have the opportunity to:
• Design and make blocks using immediate techniques before moving on to create Vinyl and Linocut blocks.
• Screen print onto fabric using Paper Cut stencils and creative mark making techniques, before moving on to make Direct stencils using the photographic exposure process .
• Experiment with mark making and layering colour by using the painterly process of Monoprinting
• 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 patterns.
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. If you aim to join as a Member to work independently in Open Access sessions, please anticipate taking more than one course, especially, if you are new to the technique.
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.
Please wear old clothes when in the studio. It is a public space so we cannot guarantee that surfaces and aprons will be clean while people are working. Please wear flat, grippy shoes that cover your toes and heels.
