Circle, Line and Geometric Patterns
Join artist and printmaker Saba Rifat to explore traditional geometric patterns through screenprinting on paper. On this one-day workshop you will be guided through creating simple geometric patterns with a compass and ruler, transferring these onto a screen, and experiment with printing your pattern in different combinations and colours to generate new compositions.
This course is designed for those with little or no prior knowledge or experience of printmaking, but is also great for those who want a refresher of a particular technique.
Saba Rifat has been a regular in the screen room here at WYPW for the last few years. Her work aims to harness the interplay of universal principles of balance, harmony, proportion, colour and simple essence of forms to produce visual work that is beautiful, timeless and contemplative. The principles of Islamic geometry are at the heart of her work, and she explores this using a variety of visual media, including screen print.
All course prices include basic materials such as inks, paper, tools and equipment. Other materials and printmaking papers will be available to buy during the course if you would like to try something a bit different, or take some materials home to try out.
After attending this course you can join our workshop as a member and continue to use our facilities to make and develop your own work. The sooner the better, as the longer you leave it the more you are likely to forget! If you join up within one month of attending the course you will receive a £5 discount.
