Colour Blocking

Colour BlockingA


In this workshop we will learn to make and use thickened dyes as a base for printing with a silk screen. Thickened dyes do not change the hand of the fabric, allowing the fabric to remain soft and supple despite repeated applications, plus thickened dyes are transparent, so layers of dye will change intensity, value and colours, giving the artist a wide range of possible uses for their created cloth.

By using an open screen, with no images masked on the screen, we will achieve large areas of one or several colors that can mix and combine on the fabric.

1-2 Days. Kit Fee
