Learners will gain useful and transferable skills in drawing and composition and the more technical processes of heat transfer and screen printing. You will go home with a range of printed and foiled samples to use for small projects, with at least one tea towel designed and printed yourself.

Learners will have a drawing session which will be a chance to learn drawing techniques using wet media (transfer paints and ink) as well as experiment with more abstract mark making. There will be demonstrations throughout the course, showing you the different techniques of heat press and screen print.

Screen print and heat transfer techniques can be layered in very exciting ways, and this introduction could start a new obsession! This could lead to more design-based work, such as repeat patterns, colour separations, or use of drawing and collage skills to make a collection of designs.
