If you've always wanted to know how to screen-print on fabric with professional results and don't have a full studio equipment, this workshop is for you!
A two-day workshop focused on giving each participant the basics to be able to print on fabric without the need of big and expensive equipment.
Schedule: 25th Feb 10 am 'til 5pm and 26th Feb 11 am 'til 4 pm
During the first day we will cover the most important things you need to know to be able to print on fabric (how to prepare the fabric, heat setting, etc).
During part of the first day and during the second day we will experiment with a couple of screen-printing techniques that will allow you to start printing independently.
The screen-printing techniques covered in workshop are low-tech and low-cost and do not necessitate an exposure lamp, thus allowing you to get creative and come up with exciting variations to try, should you continue to print by yourself.
We will be printing with handmade paper and plastic stencils and we will use the screen-filler technique.
You will also receive a script containing the information that has been covered during the course, so no need to take notes! And you get to keep your printed fabrics.
This workshop does not include multicolor printing.
I place a big focus on experimentation and creativity so don't be afraid in case you think you're not an artsy type.
Is this for me?
While this workshop has been conceived for absolute beginners, meaning you need no experience with fabric printing whatsoever, I think it would also be beneficial to those who maybe have some experience already but would like to freshen up their knowledge of the process or try alternative printing methods.
If you're an artist and you want to print your drawings on fabric (or paper) while keeping a very organic look to the result, this workshop is for you too!
All materials included. After you've booked, you will receive an updated list of the things that you need to take with you (such as a design that you want to use to print with).
Teaching language is English.
Fee: 130 p.p.
