    Fully Booked

    All materials and dyes are included in the cost of the workshop. This workshop will show you free flowing and playful ways of working with a screen. Using temporary resists we will create specific images and texture and layering for backgrounds. We will also learn to make Thermofax screens which is very similar to screenpring but is easier to manage and you can create very fine detailed images onto fabric, paper and if you want your walls! You can use any medium in the same way as you can with a screenprint. The machine we use is based on the old 1950’s technology of photocopying. As there are no chemicals involved in the process it is a very safe and simple way to create amazing images. These techniques are equally useful for textile artists and for dressmakers who want to design their own fabric. At the end of the workshop you will go home with approx 2 - 3 metres of different techniques and ideas.
