Textile innovator and designer Trish Belford will present an illustrated talk showcasing some of the screen printing techniques she specially developed for many UK fashion and textile designers; Vivienne Westwood, Georgina Von Etzdorf, Neisha Crosland, Helen Storey, Liberty Prints, English Eccentrics and Zandra Rhodes.
With the increase in digital printing many of the hand screen printed techniques may now be resigned to notebooks, this talk will through the use of samples explain the processes and complexities of many of the techniques and show new textile developments created by Trish since returning to Northern Ireland in 2004.
