Short Courses at AUB
design, printing, designers
Leading Textile Designer Noel Holmes will lead you through an exploration of pattern, print and design, which can be applied to a variety of fabric and paper surfaces.
During the 10 evenings you will be given the opportunity to create your own individual prints. You will explore the art of hand-decoration on fabric, by experimenting with a variety of basic printing methods, such as silk screen stencil, lino block printing, and heat transfer creating your own images and developing them into simple pattern repeats.
All techniques taught can be continued at home with minimal equipment, so this could be the start of an exciting journey into creating your own textile ranges. If you would like to join the craft revival and experiment with the exciting possibilities of pattern and texture afforded by traditional methods such as Shibori (tie dye) and Batik (wax resist), then you will enjoy this course.
Whilst you can purchase a variety of different base fabrics from the course tutor, you may want to bring your own having assessed the suitability for the medium being explored.
What you need to bring
A small piece of lino, calico, A2 and A3 cartridge paper, craft knife, a notebook and pen.
