GOODWILL ART GUIDE — Craft, Design & Culture

PRINTED, DYED & PAINTED TEXTILES
This title considers how colour and pattern can be applied to fabric after it has been constructed.



In Britain today there are many different attitudes to the design, production and consumption of printed textiles. The outcome ranges from the primarily functional to the purely decorative. These widely differing approaches are dependant on the training and background of the designers and makers and where they place the emphasis in the relationship between art, craft and industry.

These notes will help teachers to develop their students’ understanding of historical and contemporary cross-cultural practices in the application of colour and pattern to cloth.
