Book now

In this three day course participants will learn how to make relief prints that will be applied to fabric. Printing techniques taught will span from linocut, wood carving and collagraph.

This experimental course encourages parents and carers to collaborate with their kids in artistic play and investigation. The course is designed to allow the methods employed to be replicated back at home.

Course Outline:

Day one: Participants will be collecting design inspiration from the house and gardens and creating original print designs. They can make both a repetitive block print and larger one off print block.

Day two: The blocks will be printed on to a multitude of coloured fabrics.

Day 3: Participants will have time to work back in to their fabrics – stretching them onto canvases, making wall hangings or applying additional colour in to the designs.

Your Tutor:
Tessa Lynch received her MFA from Glasgow School of Art in 2013 and her BA Hons Tapestry from Edinburgh College of Art in 2007. Lynch works between sculpture, performance and print, often working collaboratively with other creatives. She will be exhibiting new work in the Studio Pavilion in July 2019 made in collaboration with Rachel Adams produced whilst on residency with us.
