Friday 13 April / 10:30am–4:30pm
This one-day workshop is a fantastic opportunity to experiment with mark making using silk screens and stencils.
In this second of new print workshops run by tutor Nicole Line, participants will be guided through each stage of the process with a series of demonstrations and wide range of samples to take ideas from. There will be several activities throughout the day to encourage confidence using the materials and objects. Inspiration will be taken from the current exhibition T-Shirt: Cult-Culture-Subversion to help with your designs, mainly focusing on abstract shapes.
Towards the end of each workshop, students will have the opportunity to apply knowledge gained by working collaboratively with others in the group or independently on their own projects. These workshops are a chance to gain an experience and try something new, and all work created can go towards personal projects. Students are also encouraged to take a look at home for anything you could up-cycle and transform through print. Please bring up to 4 items to print onto avoiding dark colours.
Have a go at making your own stencils at home so that you can spend more time printing. I recommend you use thin acetate sheets to make the stencils, keep it simple and keep it A3 size and under. Avoid making stencils from thin paper.
A4 size materials will be provided for you to sample onto. Please bring along your own final pieces to transform.
To make your prints machine washable, iron your items for 3 – 5 minutes, gentle wash.
Beginners welcome and for those who are curious about textiles processes and mark making. Ages 12+.
Nicole Line is a sessional tutor at University for the creative Arts working with the Fashion & Textile Foundation students in Epsom and BA Textile students in Farnham. Nicole also works in other areas of print-making, collaborating with corporate companies and designers. ‘Tactility is very important to me as a designer and textile tutor. I see the students I teach as an extension of my practice and it’s exciting to see how they use materials within their own work.’ www.nicolelineworkshops.com
