Interested in printing your own cloth? This workshop begins with students transforming simple drawings into thermofax screens. Come explore the fun of making your own design and printing with textile inks in Gignoux’s studio (Day One). Students will have an opportunity to make their own yardage while also contributing to community cloth of combined marks. Day Two and Three will focus on composition, color and line in the building of distinctive textile collages. We will layer, slice and stitch. And artfully combine hand printed cloth with other fabrics in your stash. Each student will go home with their own screen for future printing opportunities.
