Introduction to textile screenprinting and disperse dyes weekend course.

We will be looking at the method of turning flat imagery into a printed textile and the different processes used during this practice. Starting with how to put imagery onto screen, we will look at colour, mixing inks and layering prints to create unique and diverse fabric samples. You will also work with a selection of disperse dyes to create fabric samples full of experimental possibilities and colour.
