SCREEN PRINTING: the Next Step in Fabric Design

SCREEN PRINTING: the Next Step in Fabric Design image1
A three-day intensive workshop with Sarah Elizabeth Grimwood.

Delve into the world of creative multiples using screen printing as a technique. This class will teach the fundamentals of screen printing from screen handling, dye mixing, image building, colour theory, stencil creation and transfer. In this workshop we will familiarize ourselves with the ways in which screen printing has been used both traditionally and unconventionally focusing on its current use in textiles and fibre art. Exploration of emulsion screen printing as well as the more free form deconstructed method of screen printing will allow for a deeper understanding of the technique of multiples. Participants will be printing with dye onto various types of textile materials, exploring layering effects and be given the opportunity to take one print in a different direction by working back into it with brushes.

$150.00 fee covers materials and supplies, and includes a silk screen frame you can take home.

Sarah Elizabeth Grimwood holds a B.A. (Hon) from the University of Guelph. Her work in fibre and textiles encompasses dyeing, printmaking, hand spinning, needle felting, wet felting, crocheting, knitting, weaving, and sewing, with a deep interest in colour and
texture. Since 2015 she has been running Sarah Elizabeth Fibre Works in Rossland BC, a small scale, creative fibre arts business with a focus on local wools, sustainable processing, and textile upcycling. She offers workshops in fibre arts techniques throughout southern BC and Alberta.
“I draw from the depth of historic tradition and, influenced by my surroundings, infuse my perspective into each work. I approach my studio practice with an interest in experimentation, sustainability, recycled textiles, natural fibres and modern technology.
Through my work I aim to create a deeper connection to the fabric of our world.” Participants must pre-register by August 10, 2017.
