I’ve just completed a five day Designing for Surface Decoration course at Central St Martins in London. I chose the theme of science. We experimented with different techniques using inks and paint and then cut stencils in order to screenprint - something I’ve wanted to do for a while now!
I printed a couple of unicellular organism patterned designs and spacey tote bags, and today I brought it all together as a little stationary collection that encompasses astronomy, microbiology and evolutionary biology (I needed to draw some cute dinos!)
Overall it was a fun course, it allowed me to be creative away from the computer screen and I got to meet some lovely artists from different countries and backgrounds.
I hope that I find time to continue upon the stuff I learned, particularly the screen printing, and develop more patterns in a traditional way.
