Combining printmaking techniques and textile design principles, this workshop introduces students to creating motifs (designs) and working with basic pattern structures such as repeats, half-drop, brick and mirror patterns to create hand-printed fabric. Once simple motifs are designed we discuss screen stencils, block printing, and use of found objects in deciding how to translate the design into a print. As students expand their individual motif using the different pattern structures, they experiment with placement and color. High-quality water based fabric paints are used, and a variety of samples are created with the option to create a larger piece such as a table runner or wall hanging.

Explore how to produce multiple images, or "prints," from a single original surface. After a quick field trip to the RISD Museum or the Nature Lab for inspiration and sketching, you'll spend the day experimenting with various forms of printmaking, including monotype, monoprint, relief printing, drypoint and collagraph. You'll also learn about using the printing press, mixing your own inks, proper paper tearing and registration techniques. This class is designed for all skill levels.
Please provide a lunch, snacks and a beverage.
