Printed Textiles (Foundation)

1. Overview

This course is aimed at complete beginners to fabric printing and offers students the opportunity to explore a range of screen printing processes and fabric manipulation including Devore, Procion and Discharge printing methods.

There are no formal entry requirements.

All of the techniques will be suitable for development towards both interior and fashion outcomes.

2. What you will study

Students will be encouraged to develop their design understanding through personalised research and themes. Ideas can then be explored through the print workshop and various printing methods to build a body of fabric samples.

During the two semesters, students will build on their knowledge and improve their understanding of the design process.  Students will be given the freedom to explore all printing techniques throughout the course. Design drawing, class talks, group/individual discussions and studio-based practice are all methods of course delivery. 

Students are encouraged to keep a visual diary, which reflects their personal practice, individual interests and the work of other artists. This becomes a personal journal of creative development during the course.

3. Entry Requirements

This course provides an excellent introduction for beginners. There are no formal entry requirements.

All students are required to be at least 16 years of age on the first day of the course.
