Textiles - Painting & Printing on Fabric

Textiles - Painting & Printing on Fabric [ADF2504G]: Overview

Have you ever wanted to try painting and printing onto fabric to enhance your textile projects. This could be printing motifs for clothing, painting landscape backgrounds for embroidery or creating abstract textures for patchwork or appliqué.

What will we cover?

We will start by experimenting with fabric paints to build up textures and scenes; we will practise printing with Indian woodblocks using special inks; creating abstract texture using a marbling technique and special paints.

Who is this course for? Is there anything I need to know before joining?

For anyone interested in experimenting and being creative with fabrics and paints. This would suit learners who have an interest in any textile mediums.

As our courses are taught in English, please contact us if you have any concerns about your level of English.

What do I need to bring to the first class? Will there be any extra costs?

You will need to bring:
Some light coloured fabric at least a metre e.g. calico, cotton, linen or silk
An assortment of paint brushes in different sizes
Fabric scissors
Your tutor will supply the fabric paints and inks, however if you have any paints at home please bring them along to try e.g. acrylics or watercolour.

What can I do when I finish the course?

Learners will have the opportunity to progress to a longer embroidery course with Surrey Adult Learning for a more in depth personal development or to other sewing or design courses to enhance further learning.
