What is the progression route?

Work produced could go towards portfolio for entry into FE & HE courses. It is also possible to make items to sell or exhibit. If printing on fabric, the work will be suitable for clothing, upholstery as well as display.

Are there any extra costs?

Yes – if students want to purchase specialist paper from the tutor. If interested in using thermofax screens, images can be made by the tutor for a fee, depending on size

Work set between sessions?

No, but students often choose to prepare work between sessions

What should students bring?

For the 1st session, please bring
• Basic drawing equipment – and note/sketch book.
• A scalpel – ideally Swann Morton with 10A blade – this is not needed for the first session
• An apron or old shirt to protect your clothes
Other specialist materials might be wanted during the course, the tutor can advise.

Teaching method/style?

Initially, students are introduced to a new technique ever session, to see what’s possible, what is of particular interest & how the different techniques work. Some students choose to experiment, particularly if they are planning to return. Others plan & realise more considered pieces supported by the tutor. The course is progressive and students returning after one term will be supported on a 1:1 basis.
