Creative Textiles

This course will introduce students to the handmade fabric printing and dyeing techniques. Research a theme which you find visually stimulating around which you will base your textile project. Develop your chosen design into repeat pattern with block printing, hand stencilling or use the Batik dyeing process to create colourful and vibrant bags. After printing your fabric you will be able to work it into finished products, make sample fabric prints choosing to embellish your fabric using as many of the techniques as you like. In addition we will also be making Nuno felted chiffon scarves, a creation that you can take home and be proud of.brbrRecommended materials: You may wish to personalise your work with collected materials such as beads and accessories, natural cotton, linen or silk fabrics to dye.
