Nature’s Palette: Screen Printing with Natural Dyes with Deborah Manson (Nov)

Deborah Manson
£90

You will learn how to make botanical printing pastes from plant extracts, foraged and waste plant materials. You’ll print your own design onto paper and cloth samples using hand cut paper stencil screen printing techniques, experimenting with shape, pattern and overprint. Discover a new gentle colour palette and learn how to change print colours with natural modifiers. Over the weekend Deborah will demonstrate techniques, share her own work, her library of botanical colour and her passion for growing plants and natural dye.

This course is suitable for beginners as well as those with more experience.

White Room, Phoenix Art Space

Most materials are supplied although students will need to bring the following along:

  • A range of white, natural or lightly coloured fabrics, 100% cotton, linen, silk or wool. PLEASE NOTE : COTTON /LINEN FABRICS MUST BE PRE-WASHED AT A HIGH TEMPERATURE, SILK, WOOL MUST ALSO BE PRE-WASHED.
  • Rubber gloves
  • Apron
  • Foraged / waste plant materials as instructed

Deborah Manson works from her studio in Sussex where she makes textiles and works on paper. Her garden is an extension of the studio where she grows and processes plants for natural dyeing. Her practice engages deeply with the act of making, an exploration of materials and the natural world. Her aesthetic – lo-fi, handmade, imperfect – evolves from her interest in age old craft techniques and the cross overs between art, design and craft. Whether working with paper or cloth she explores colour relationships, placement and composition and the juxtaposition of materials and textures. Deborah studied Visual Communication at Central St Martins and Textile Design at Chelsea College of Art. She exhibits her work in museums and galleries and runs workshops and courses for people of all ages and abilities.
