Deconstructed Colour on Cloth and Paper and an Introduction to Thermofax Printing with Molly Bullick - Weds 28 – Friday 30 May
Making unique fabrics or prints on paper is an extremely satisfying form of artistic expression. During this three day class you will explore two unique and very different printing techniques which each have the potential to produce exciting and unexpected results.
Thermofax screens are capable of producing delicate texture such as handwriting, grasses, sketches, feathers and photographic images. They can be used to layer marks over more gestural imagery created by deconstructed screenprinting. The possibilities are endless. Deconstructed Colour on Cloth and Paper and an Introduction to Thermofax Printing (Please note that this class has changed from 5 to 3 days.)
