Textile Printing Processes
Textile Printing Processes - July 17th from 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM - Price: $104
Workshop Instructor: Pat Sturtzel

Print-making takes many forms and techniques have been developed by many cultures to decorate fabrics. Inspired by these traditions, participants will create printing tools using three different types of materials, including inexpensive and easy to find materials. In addition to printing with the tools made in the class, we will experiment printing with found objects and items from nature. As we print, we will explore repeat and random designs as well as color considerations. Several different types of textile paints will be used including opaque, transparent and sparkle paint. Tools made in this class can also be used in the classes taught by the same instructor on July 18th (Fabric Dyeing: Bound Resist and Soy Wax Batik) and July 19th (Fabric Dyeing: Color Gradations and Over-dyeing).
