Evening Repeat Pattern Printmaking on Textiles

Split over four sessions the course will guide you through the process of designing and printing a two colour repeat print to create your own screen-printed fabric. Students will develop the technical knowledge and skills required to turn their designs into a repeating pattern. Using paper stencils and photo emulsion to transfer the designs onto the screens, students will print their fabrics in multiple colours in the studio. The course aims to demonstrate repeat printing techniques that can be replicated in a home environment.

Course Structure
• Week 1 - Design session. Come armed with ideas for your print. Create your repeat print using drawings, photographic images, simple shapes, text. You can also use cut lino tiles. Separate the colour layer in preparation for stencil making.
• Week 2 - Stencil making and colour mixing. Screen preparation, coating with emulsion and exposing the stencils onto the screen. Deciding on the colour scheme for your fabric and mixing the colours.
• Week 3 - Preparing the fabric and marking registration points. Printing the first colour of your design using screens on table tops.
• Week 4 - Printing the second colour. Registering the second layer of the design. Trouble shooting!
