Taught by Allie Morris
Printmaking is an easy and accessible way to create unique textiles and customize any piece of fabric. You will begin by learning the basics in relief printing by carving one simple pattern or one repeating pattern. After finishing your carving, you will learn how to best prepare and print on your choice textile to create a wearable print. Techniques and tips pertaining to types of inks, textiles, and heat-setting will also be covered to ensure that you can easily apply this workshop to future projects.
