During this workshop students will unlock their creative potential while learning to design and print original patterns and images on cloth. You will start with simple monoprinting followed by screen printing on fabric using transparent, custom mixed pigments with infinite color options. During class students will acquire skills in using shapes, color overlays, visual textures and photographs to produce yardage and smaller compositions. Screen stencils used during class include wax crayon, contact paper and photo emulsion. Participants will receive valuable information and tips, and the pace is swift – but fun. The goal is to learn from scratch, refresh your knowledge and perfect your skills. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
