Heat Transfer Printing Workshop - 19 February 2019

19.02.2019 to 19.02.2019

Monday 19 February 2019

11:00 – 15:00


Course Description

Learn how to create colour, patterns and textures onto fabric using the heat transfer technique. Disperse dyes can be applied to paper and then transferred onto fabric using a heat press. It is a fun and experimental technique which can produce instant results onto cloth. Your tutor will guide you step by step through the process in our professional print studio. You will explore and experiment with the technique to create a variety of different surface pattern designs onto cloth of approximately A3 in size.

Who is the workshop for?

This course is suitable for adults who are complete beginners or those who wish to refresh their previous skills. Those with an understanding of the process can use the day to develop their skills and gain tutor advice and guidance.

Do I need to bring anything?

Basic materials needed for the day will be provided. This will include disperse inks, newsprint paper, brushes, found materials and sponges etc. Small fabric samples will be provided but you are advised to bring along further fabric for printing. Synthetic materials such as polyester work best but you can also achieve some more subtle results onto cotton. You can also bring along found materials to experiment with such as leaves, stencils and textures.

Refreshments will be provided but you may wish to bring some lunch along with you.
