Introduction to sublimation printing using heat transferable paint on synthetic cloth with Jule Mallett
24th August 2018 @ 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM BST£45
Experiment with colour and mark making to create a wonderful range of different effects on synthetic fibres using dye-sublimation printing.
Sublimation printing is a technique that uses heat sensitive inks. These inks turn into gas under the influence of heat and combine with the synthetic fibres, so the ink becomes part of the structure of the material and the images on the fabric won’t fade or crack – unlike some screenprinted inks, even after multiple washings.
The techniques Jule will show you can be combined and layered to create unique designs and endless possibilities.
This four hour ‘taster session’ is aimed at beginners.
Date: Friday 24 August
