Printed Textiles (Intermediate)

1. Overview

The course offers students the opportunity to further explore the processes they have previously used which include Devore, Procion and Discharge printing methods.

All of the techniques will be suitable for development towards both Interior and Fashion outcomes.

2. What you will study

Additionally, there will be further printing techniques, which include Acid printing, Seersucker and Latex printing, which help to develop textured printing effects. 

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

Students will build on their knowledge during the two semesters as their understanding of the design process is integrated through design drawing, class talks, individual/group discussions and studio-based practice. They will also be given the freedom to explore all printing techniques throughout.

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 their development during the course.

3. Entry Requirements

This course is aimed at students with some previous experience of fabric printing or, those have completed the Foundation Printed Textile course or equivalent.

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