Have you ever thought about designing and printing your own curtains, fabric, or wallpaper? In this workshop, you will learn various dyeing and printing techniques in creating sumptuous patterned fabric. We will begin the workshop with an introduction to natural and fiber-reactive dyes which will create a varied base color on the fabric. We will then work with both screenprinting and block printing techniques to create rich layers of imagery. Repeat pattern making, working with transparent base, overdyeing and overprinting, and various fabric applications will also be demonstrated and demystified in the workshop.
Level: Intermediate – Introduction to Screenprinting on Fabric or Paper, or equivalent experience (6 hours), required.
Registration closes October 6, 2022. Material fees are included with your registration, though a list of additional items needed to be gathered/purchased will be sent with your confirmation.
