Fashion Textiles: Print & Embroider – Week 1
Cost: £193 (Early-Bird: £174)
This course gives students the opportunity to explore the medium of fabric printing and hand embroidery.
We will use a variety of traditional techniques to design and create a hand carved lino print.
Students will be shown techniques and then have the opportunity to try them out in their own designs. We will also investigate the art of hand embroidery: experimenting with scale, yarn, colour, pattern and overlaying to create a fun and adventurous pallet of stitches that compliment your designed print. Creativity is key!
All materials and equipment will be provided.
