Print & Pattern

7 Oct

I don’t think I’ve ever grown out of that ‘back to school’ feeling so I usually try and sign up to an evening class at this time of year to keep my brain cells ticking over and my creativity alive as the nights draw in.

This year I’m doing a beginner’s class in silkscreen printing at Morley College in Lambeth. We’re starting off with basic stencil prints so for my homework I’ve been gathering simple patterns for inspiration.

{Diamond Dogs / Clouds and Bolts / Leaves}

{Feathers / Trees and Birds / Glasses / Blue Clouds}

{Circles / Chevrons / Coffee Beans}

I could go on and on – there are so many talented printmakers out there. Not sure how far I’ll be able to get in twelve weeks but I’m hoping the learning curve will be a fun one! I’ll be sure to share the results with you.

    That sounds like a fun class. I like the print with the glasses. Hope you’ll show us the pattern you make.

    I was thinking of taking a French class but that’s just me dreaming of one summer living on the French countryside near a lake… Yes I am dreaming :)

    This sounds like a great class! Oh how I wish sometimes that I don’t live in a rural county far from everything! London might be too far to go for an evening class…boo!

    What a great idea. I do miss starting something new at this time of year but working in a university means its crazy time for me. Love the collection of patterns you have collated together.

    Oh I’d love to do that too. Well done for doing it, it’s so easy to want to do things but not actually get round to it. I did a 3 hour course of screen printing at the Make Lounge in Islington 3 years ago and loved it. You get such amazing results and it’s so effective.

    […] mentioned a little while back that I enrolled on an eight week evening class to learn the basics of silkscreen printing. I’ve only got a few weeks to go so I thought I’d share a couple of the designs […]
