    Times: 11.00-4.00
    Duration: 2 days
    Includes: All materials, your design to take away on a USB and a 50cm x 50cm fabric panel

    During this two-day course you will learn how to create your own unique print, starting from where and how to source and use inspiration. Once creativity is sparked and the juices are flowing, you will translate your ideas onto paper, playing with basic shapes and mark-making. Don’t worry you don’t have to be a competent artist and there is no pressure. This part will be fun and fluid (and there’s always some tracing paper on hand).

    Your drawings will then be photographed and, using Photoshop Elements, you will learn how to edit and clean your design and how to apply filters to change the appearance and colours. You will be guided through the benefits of layers and finish your design by creating a seamless repeat. Finally, you will learn how to prepare your file for printing and you will finish day two by watching your design come to life, as you get an opportunity to print your unique design onto a panel of fabric. The skills and methods learnt can be applied to many different designs, starting points and outcomes.
