Cottenham summer School Screen Print

These are some of the truly fabulous fabrics printed by student on my course at Screen Print Summer School at Cottenham Village College this year.  I have a strong belief that teaching is all about encouraging each person to develop their own style and I think that these prints really do show that.  Everyone in the class, without exception,  did really wonderful work this year.  These are just some examples:
Debra - photographic screen from her own drawings
Adi - exploring design
Ann's swans - tricky registration!


A selection of Debra's prints in a pile

David's tree print -A clever alternating of 2 screens to get that long trunk

This is Jean's workstation - lots of room, lots of printing!

I think this was done by the "other Jean"

Other Jean and it's a vilene stencil print taking design into a more serendipitous realm

Photoprint of little drawings

And  a fishy print on paper and on fabric


I can't remember who did this one but I like it!

Nicola, creating yardage- looking forward to seeing her wearing this!

Very delicate print from Jean

And Jean again

Sarah & Aika - swapping and sharing screens

Sarah's Africa series

And sarah's kitchen series

Sarah and Debra wearing their prints that made last year - fabulous!

I have no idea who made this but it's simple and charming

Aika made a series of variations on this theme, using different colours for each set

Ann - inspired by Newmarket, screen made by drawing with filler
Well done everyone who took part - your work is absolutely inspirational!   If you are interested in trying out screen printing on textiles I will be running 2 screen print days - both Saturdays at Cottenham VC   see their program at this link
