Design and Print Your Own Tea Towel weekend workshop

I will be teaching a number of textile workshops at the NSCCD (Nova Scotia Centre for Craft and Design) during the winter semester 2017. 

Orange Fox by Willa

The second workshop I will be teaching is Design and Print Your Own Tea Towel. During this short weekend course we learn how to design and create simple stencils and explore shapes, colours, and layering working with opaque and transparent print paste. 

Experiments with overlaying coloured printing inks

We practice on cotton fabric and course participants will be provided with cotton and linen tea towels to print their final design.

It is fabulous to watch simple designs transform and become beautiful patterns on fabric.

Fun things happen when blending ink in a single stencil

The fabulous thing about this course is that all the techniques you learn during the two days are easily transferable and you can take this knowledge home and start printing on your kitchen table (if you so desire!)
