Fabric printing - Print and Paint a Pinny, Picture or Handbag
Tutor: Alison HulmeCourse Code: 1822-01


Students will experiment with Thermofax screens, Gellie Plates, stamps and stencils to create a range of samples, from these they will design their own large piece of fabric. Alison will bring a pinny pattern in four different sizes so that students can make up their own unique fabric design into a pinny. Alternatively students may choose to make a picture or large bag


The course will be an introduction to print making on fabric. Using a variety of different disciplines students will learn how to make different backgrounds, print in layers and create balanced designs. From the experimental stages students can then decide which technique they would like to pursue in more detail. At the end of the course there will be time for a Q & A session and notes can be taken.

I finished my Foundation Degree in stitched textiles in 2013.  Since then I have been screen printing fabric, and use this to create large art canvases, bags, pinnies and accessories to my own design.  I enjoy creating a huge variety of colours and patterns, and have had great success selling them in a number of venues, including the Knitting Stitching show at Alexandra Palace and the Festival of Quilts at NEC Birmingham.  I now have my own studio near Salisbury on the Hampshire/Wiltshire border, and I really enjoy sharing my enthusiasm through my talks and workshops and demonstrating at a variety of textile shows and fairs.

Closer to home I love exhibiting at Sir Harold Hillier Gardens where the Zero Nine Group are always made to feel so welcome.
