Weekend Screenprinting course with well known textile designer Ingrid Anderson!
Have some fun creating your own design to screenprint onto fabric. You will have a chance to design some cushion covers, an apron, tote bag or a handmade gift of your choice.
You will begin by learning the basic techniques then develop and practice these on your own designs.
Focus will be on teaching the process of how to create a hand-cut stencil which can be a simple one-colour screen print or a more complex three-colour print using registration and pattern repeat. Developing a print using overlays of colour, negative and positive imagery will also be covered.
Later in the course there will be a chance to create stencils digitally using the Cricut machine.
This course also makes a great gift for those who love arts and craft.
To get the most out of this course, think ahead about what type of design you'd like to print (bring A3 print outs of simple images).
Ingrid creates screen printed fabrics with an innate connection to local design, heritage and contemporary art. Her designs are inspired by a love of New Zealand’s native flora and fauna and are recognisable with her use of simple motifs and bold flat colour.
Ingrid has a strong social and environmental conscience and chooses to support local product and services wherever possible.
All her products are designed printed and made in New Zealand.
