What could your journey be with Adult Learning Lewisham?
There are many ways of producing an image but I really enjoy the stencil method, which involves cutting stencils from ones own creations and constructing the image in layers. It was so exciting watching my first screen print grow. I'm now into my third year and I'm totally hooked!
I have been attending this course on a Mon am 10-12:30. The tutor is excellent & you are able to follow your own projects at your own pace with expert guidance. There are 5 people on the course currently, (as at 5/3/15), but it needs a few more to continue (max 9 people I believe). The course is suitable for any level, from beginner to competent printer, and there are great facilities. It takes place at the Granville Park site, which is just a few minutes walk from Lewisham station. I want to generate interest, as I am enjoying it so much I would like it to continue. Hopefully there will be some interested parties out there who find this review. If interested, don't delay, please follow up with the provider as soon as you can.
I am halfway through this course and really excited at the progress I have made. The instructions are clear, supplemented by excellent handouts and individual feedback at every stage of the process. We have completed out skirt blocks and learned how to modify the basic block into different styles and we are about to start drawing our trousers. We have learned the correct way to take accurate measurements and transfer these to paper. It's not nearly as complicated as I thought before starting and our instructor "A" has demystified the whole process. We're encouraged to start thinking about how to translate our personalised blocks into new designs. I am looking forward to the rest of this class and would encourage anyone who has some basic experience with commercial patterns to consider this class. Understanding how the patterns are created from body measurements has already made me start looking at my commercial patterns differently and I am getting a better understanding of how they work and how I can modify them to make them fit better. Highly recommended course!
