Take your fabric printing to a higher level. We’ll create textiles that are large scale, learn how to sweep the area with color variations, and combine techniques for uniquely printed fabric. Using MX procion type dye, we’ll use a thickener to obtain a workable paste that becomes the medium for color mixing, and allows for applications that layer color over color, pattern over pattern. We’ll explore monoprinting, stamping, transferring texture, and stencils with hands-on exercises for color theory and design. These methods can be used for silk, cotton and linen. For this class we’ll focus on cotton, and the results will be glorious!
