Fabric design and printing

PILOT WEEK 2: March 26/27/28

Mass produced items clutter an already over-stocked market and it is hard to find unique, once-off, hand-made products characterised by individuality, quality and style. Express your identity and have some fun creating your own unique designs and images and then printing them – by hand – on 100% cotton cloth. In the process, you will also learn how to do silkscreen and block printing.
The three-day-workshop offers you the chance to print three items.
The five-day-workshop, where you print four items, provides you with the skills to work independently afterwards.
About Esme Kruger:
“I love the process of making art. For me, expressing my creativity is life-giving. As a graduate in fine arts, I taught art, worked as a museum artist and did graphic and media design for video productions. I also worked as a design promoter and was involved in national and international design workshops, events and publications in a variety of roles. Textiles have always fascinated me and since 2004 I did several textile design, printing and dyeing courses, specialising in cotton and silk. In 2016 I moved to Swellendam and established the Hand Printing Studio where I hope to share my passion for printing with like-minded souls.”
