NEW TERM 2 DATES!
An experimental course covering a range of paper and fabric manipulation techniques inspired by traditional printmaking and the textile arts. Techniques may include: etching, collagraph, lino and screen printing as well as the fabric art forms of Shibori with silk, natural dye vats and batik.
Learn four techniques per term. No experience necessary but returning students will have the opportunity to build upon their knowledge.
*Please note: Although NSCC will provide some basic equipment for this course, occasionally you will be encouraged to bring some additional items to class. If you are doing additional work to the class activities you will need to bring your own art materials. This will be discussed as a group with your tutor.
