In this one-day workshop, take inspiration from the exhibition T-Shirt: Cult-Culture-Subversion and design and paint a T-shirt under the expert guidance of Sarah Campbell.
Beginners will start by playing on paper with guidance on how to consider shape, colour, motifs and form when designing a pattern for a T-shirt. Acclaimed designer Sarah Campbell will guide the small group (maximum 8 participants) through understanding mark making, colour balance and tonal contrast. Students will be encouraged to consider colour harmonies and spend time experimenting with colourfast textile inks.
People of all abilities and skill levels are welcome and there’ll be no pressure to produce finished work – it’s a day to enjoy an inspiring time and to learn and practise new skills to take home. All materials will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own favourite brushes, paints and sketchbooks too.
Sarah Campbell Ltd undertakes a wide range of projects from one-off design creations, unique pieces and commissions to textile and surface design for the high street. Her continuing collaboration with West Elm, the US homewares company, gives a worldwide presence, as do the growing fabric collections with Michael Miller Fabrics. Nearer home, new work includes developing the Sarah Campbell Designs brand into fabrics, wallpapers and ribbons, expanding teaching commitments, and working on new book ideas. Meanwhile she continues to write a diverting blog.
Price: £100 includes materials and exhibition entry.
