Explore the colorful world of screen printing with local expert Kathy Green. This hands-on workshop will guide you through the “breakdown” screen printing method, employing thickened fiber reactive dyes to produce distinctive, vibrant designs on a variety of fabrics.
Over the course of the workshop, you will discover and practice techniques such as stenciling, stamping, painting, and shibori bucket dyeing. A fundamental part of the class will focus on building visual texture, where you will learn to create intricate layers of design and color to bring your fabric to life.
This workshop is designed to accommodate a wide range of fabric types, including protein fibers like silk and wool, as well as cellulose fibers such as cotton, linen, and hemp. You will be amazed to see how printing over previously dyed fabric can yield mesmerizing effects, elevating your artwork to a whole new level.
