175.00

Work alongside textile designer Georgia Bosson in her South Bermondsey studio to create your own print and pattern designs for textiles. This four week evening class is designed to allow you to explore the creative drawing and textile techniques used by Georgia to create her unique collections. 

Creativity with print and fabric is at the heart of this course enabling you to develop a fun and unique body of work to kick start your creativity.

Course structure:

Week 1: Experimental drawing techniques to get you to find new ways of discovering print and pattern in everyday objects. We will also have an introduction to screen printing and colour mixing.

Week 2: We will begin the evening with looking at developing your drawings and ideas from week one into your first screen printed designs. This week will be focused on experimenting with different print techniques and looking at ways to create a multi-layered repeat print.

Week 3: Beginning with a group discussion about your work and personal project plans, we will develop a plan for you to follow to take your ideas onto fabric. At this stage everyone will be working at different paces so you might be working on some more drawn ideas or you might be working exclusively on the print table.

Week 4: Work on final fabric pieces is the focus of this week

 This course is suitable for beginners or those with some experience looking to refresh their skills and find a new way of approaching print design. This is a guided course that focuses on your own work and ideas working in a small group to ensure lots of one to one tuition.

Over the course of four evening sessions we will work together to create a body of experimental drawings which we then work with to create a range of layered screen printed textile pieces. You will have the time and support to explore scale, composition and the power of repeat to create your own patterns.

 The course will cover a range of experimental textile screen printing techniques and aims to enable you to have fun with print and build confidence in your own ideas. In addition to creating your own designs you will have access to Georgia’s print archive for inspiration and her range of screens. 

This four week evening course runs on Tuesday evenings from 6.30 – 9.30pm. Starting from the first Tuesday of the month.

The course includes all pigments, binders and drawing materials as well as some fabric to get you started with your sampling, additional cloth can be purchased and you are welcome to bring your own fabrics to work with. I would also encourage you to bring a small sketchbook or notebook to jot down any ideas.

 At the end of the course you will leave with, a bundle of drawings and textile samples and at least two finished pieces of cloth ready to be stitched into anything from cushions to clothes.

 I will provide homemade refreshments however you are invited to bring a packed dinner if you think you will get peckish!

If you have any questions about the course please get in touch via email and I will be more than happy to run through the structure in more detail.
