This workshop looks at how you can translate the fine art printing effects onto fabric, not necessarily for the use of fabric as textiles, but the see what fabric can offer the artist as an alternative to paper.
We will be using the same oil based inks as you would on paper, thus allowing you to print intaglio and relief work.
We will make some basic printing plates in the workshop, but if you also have any you wish to bring, from etching through to lino, then we can use them.
We will be working on 100% cotton and printing through a press.
This is a very interesting way of viewing print with so much potential for further sewing and appliqué work.
Date: Saturday 27 May
Time: 10am to 4pm
