SCREEN PRINT

SCREEN PRINT - SYDNEY

LOCATION: The School

TIME: 10am to 4pm

Come and explore screen printing and experiment with colour combinations to take home your very own print. You won't believe how addictive and fun this is. No experience necessary and all materials supplied. It’s something you will truly enjoy and expertly guided by Joanna Fowles who teaches textiles at UTS as well as other highly impressive creative pursuits like her L.O.T.S label.

Everyone will have 4 pieces of A3 heavy paper (minimum 300gsm) and end with a finished print. As it is a non exposed screen stencil workshop if anyone wants more complicated stencil we suggest they come to the class with one pre cut. Eckersleys sell good quality stencil paper with a vinyl feel so it will last a number of prints. Otherwise newsprint will suffice but this will only last a couple of prints. 

INCLUDED: 4 pieces of A3 paper (min 300gsm) with tea towels, napkins and calico bags available to buy on the day and a light lunch.

ADVANCED SHIBORI - SYDNEY

LOCATION & BOOKINGS: The School

CLASS TIME: 10am to 4pm

Finally we have found the ultimate Shibori all-day class with our divine Jo Fowles.  Could this be the best indigo day of your year? Quite possibly. All day vats, double the drying space and a reverse Shibori bleaching technique class included. 

Shibori is in one word; stunning. Using beautiful silk scarves and this ancient Japanese dyeing method we will create textiles that defy beauty. Dyeing is perfect for the inexperienced and we will cover various tying, clamping and resist-dye Shibori techniques. Choose your own technique to make your own unique hand-dyed piece. 

Feel free to bring your own things in (bedding, scarves, pj's, jeans or pillowslips) to add to the vat.

Jo's previous class experience is complimentary - but not necessary. 

INCLUDED: Includes a pair of pillow cases, 2 silk scarves and 1 napkin set to try both techniques.

BLOCK PRINTING - SYDNEY

LOCATION: The School

TIME: 10am to 1pm

This is the class for you if you have ever wondered what it might be like to access your creative side. Block printing looks deceptively simple, but here in lies its joy. Where you can take it and what you can do with it is endless.

The truth is that teacher Joanna Fowles had the ideal blocks made - perfect shapes and forms when printed hand in hand with her art-directed paint options, incredible results are to be had! You will make your very own pattern blocks and then experiment with hand printing, colour combinations and repeat layouts until you have your own set of napkins and tea towel. We promise you will want to frame the tea towel. You won't believe how addictive and fun this is.

No experience necessary and all materials supplied. It's something you will truly enjoy.

INCLUDED: 1 tea towel and 4 napkins and lots of extras available to purchase and snacks conducive to block printing - easy to eat delicious morsels!
