The purpose of this workshop is for students to discover their creative potential while learning how to design and print original patterns and images on cloth. Participants explore processes of simple mono printing and screen printing using transparent, custom mixed pigments with infinite color options. You will acquire skills in using shapes, color overlays, visual textures and photographs in producing both yardage and smaller compositions. Screen stencils include wax crayon, contact paper and photo emulsion. The class is packed with valuable information and tips, and the pace will be swift – but fun. Learn from scratch, refresh your knowledge or perfect your skills! Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $525
