Note: With the break between classes students have time to take ideas home and work through the mark making process before committing to the imagery they will be printing.

Join surface designer and textile printer Natalie Gerber in her studio and choose between a weekend intensive or taking the course over 4 weeks. In this workshop you will expand your knowledge of screen printed textiles in an intimate class of two to four students, and team print with a studio mate to produce your own micro collection. 

With hands on demonstrations and problem solving throughout the course, you will print two meters of organic cotton/linen and work through the steps from developing a repeating pattern to silkscreen preparation, colour mixing, screen printing registration, and finally printing.

At the end of this course you will have a better understanding of the process and materials for silkscreen printing on cloth and take home your own micro textile collection for future projects.


Session 1 – Intro to Textile Printing and repeat pattern development
You will begin developing two to three repeat patterns for print that consider an end use and work    
together as a micro collection. We will also prepare screens for printing.          

Session 2 –  Intro to water based inks and silk screen prep
Our focus in this class will be on colour mixing, putting artwork onto screens and registration to create    repeating patterns.  We will discuss various pigment systems and the additives that can be used which affect the hand of the finished print, viscosity of the inks and fixatives for longer lasting colour.

Session 3 + 4 – Team Printing
Over the next two sessions participants will work together as a team and print samples while fine tune their printing technique.  You will learn about registration for repeat pattern printing and print three meters of fabric in multiple colourways for your final micro collection.
