Breakdown Screen Printing: 2wk Evening Course with Sue Crook

Posted on Updated on

Wednesday 1st & 8th August, 6pm – 8pm

Create some interesting abstract patterns onto fabric using ‘Breakdown Screen Printing’ with Procion dyes, in this two week evening course with Sue Crook. 

During our first session, we will prepare the textured screen, using thickened dye and suitable plastic inserts – e.g. bubblewrap, plastic mesh. 

This will be left to dry over the intervening week and, once the inserts are removed, there will be beautiful patterns, shapes and textures remaining. 

We will then print onto the fabric and scarf during our second session. Initially, the dried print paste will act as a resist but, as we apply more, it will slowly dissolve and ‘breakdown’ – providing some interesting abstract patterns, each one being different from the last.

Age: Teens & Adults (unsupervised)
Cost: £60 (for both weeks, including all materials)
