Printing Fabric by Hand

18 Nov 2018 - 18 Nov 2018

A workshop which combines the printing techniques of stencilling, stamping and block printing.

In a world of mass production the interest and passion for making by hand has been embraced and in high demand. Designing, printing and making soft furnishings and your own clothes can be a very creative process. Using natural fibres and printing only what you need, is environmentally sound and can be more cost effective.

Bringing together in one design the printing techniques of stencilling, stamping and block printing you will create your own motifs and patterns from your ideas.  You will then discuss how best to print onto fabric, whether your motifs or designs work best as a repeat pattern or placement print. We can look at making for cushions, napkins, wall piece or a throw. As space is limited it is easier to print small fabrics lengths of up to two metres.

The tutor, Vivien Haley, studied sculpture and printmaking at the National Art School, Sydney. Initially exhibiting with the Sculpture Society, she then developed a 20 year career as a Textile Printmaker exhibiting widely throughout Australia in public and private galleries. She also exhibited with Stella Downer Fine Art for a decade. Inspired by the Japanese aesthetics and interpretation of nature, Vivien’s work reflects the landscape, its subtle colour palette and organic design. Her practice has continued for some thirty years. 

Cost: $145. Class takes place from 10am - 4pm on Sunday 18 November 2018.

Limited places available. Book early to avoid disappointment. Information on how to enrol in this class can be found on our Art Classes page.
