Working with textile designer Jacky, you will learn the basic techniques of screen printing to go home with a unique fabric of your own design, big enough for a cushion cover. First you will design and cut paper stencils, then use screens to apply colour through the stencils onto fabric. This is a quick way to produce effective colourful patterns for t-shirts, bags, curtains, blinds. Inks and a piece of fabric are included, extra fabric will be available at cost price. Please wear old clothes and/or an apron. Bring along a packed lunch, a plain t-shirt/pillowcases if you wish to experiment and a cutting board and craft knife if you have them. No experience needed.
