A six-week introduction to creating tactile textile designs, using hands-on and digital techniques. No experience required, just a love for pattern, shape and colour!
The course will introduce you to:
– Painting with transfer/disperse dyes
– Lo-Fi screen printing with laser-cut stencils
– Creating digital designs using Inkscape
– Digital embroidery
You’ll create samples using these techniques then work on a final design and apply it to a product, such as a bag, purse, t-shirt or textile artwork.
This six-week course will run on Thursdays, 6.15pm – 8.15pm, beginning on 27 February 2020. The course will take place at KWMC: The Factory, Unit 24 Filwood Green Business Park, Filwood Park Lane (off Hengrove Way), Bristol, BS4 1ET.
