Printing On Textiles and Paper Goods
Printing on Textiles and Paper Goods
Workshop: 4:15pm to 5:30pm
All ages welcome. Each child under age 8 must be accompanied by an adult.
Limit 30 participants.
This design workshop will introduce participants to a simple technique for printing on fabric and paper goods. With a focus on designing a set of four napkins and matching place cards we will cut simple images out of flat sponges and use them to design colorful patterns and simple designs that will create a festive theme for your holiday table top. With the guidance of surface designer Ceci Bowman, students will have fun designing their own motif and using it to develop a unique collection
I will be teaching one of my favorite new printing techniques using expandable sponges to create simple motifs on textiles and paper.
The sponge can be drawn on with a pencil and I can map out my ideas and plan my design. http://www.dickblick.com/products/miracle-sponges/
The best thing about using sponges, is they make a simple elegant, graphic image that is easy to work with and manipulate in different mediums. I love the texture that it adds!
