A special two day workshop at Brewery Arts in Cirencester  Sunday May 7th and Monday 8th.

A weekend of translucent colour and fabric – painting onto silk with brushes –  and printing onto man made fabrics with a heat transfer press.

Glorious colours and instant results using  simple techniques which are easily achieved at home and which explore the impregnation of various fabrics with dye and how marks can be very specifically made – or allowed to create themselves. Painting with liquid dyes allows the medium to run through the weave – whilst printing places the colour exactly where it is wanted through a technique called sublimation (heat transfer) This allows you to print flat colour through hand cut stencils,  linear or painted images onto man made fabrics. A fantastic way to transform existing clothing and cloth – easily achieved at home with an iron.
