Event description

Description

Learn and explore the process of heat transfer printing onto textiles on this one day experimental workshop.
Disperse dyes and transfer papers can be applied to fabric using a heat press. You will use different methods to create surface pattern imagery and develop a range of textile samples.
You will explore use of different techniques to create imagery using hand cut stencils and hand painted imagery.

What experience do I need?

This workshop is aimed at complete beginners, although those with a prior understanding of the techniques may use the workshop to develop their skills and gain tutor advice and guidance in a friendly studio environment.

What will I make?

You will make a range of surface pattern textile samples using a variety of different methods of the heat transfer technique.

Who is my tutor?

Kirstie Williams is a founding member of Leeds Print Workshop. She is a practising designer and printmaker creating both textile and paper based work.
She studied MA Textile Design at Chelsea College of Art in 2010 and completed a PGCE teaching qualification at the University of Huddersfield in 2014.
Kirstie previously worked as an Associate Lecturer for Short Courses at Leeds College of Art, primarily teaching in adult education. She is passionate about bringing together a new creative community in Leeds through the running and development of Leeds Print Workshop.

Do I need to bring anything?

Basic materials needed for the day will be provided, including disperse inks, transfer papers, newsprint paper, brushes, sponges etc. You are advised to bring along some plain fabrics. Synthetic materials such as polyester work best but you can also get some lighter, more subtle results onto cotton . Small fabric samples will be provided but if you wish to make larger pieces you’ll need to bring your own fabrics along.
You may also benefit from bringing along thin objects such as paper doilies, lace material, dried leaves, threads etc as these will all make great patterns.

If I can't attend can I get a refund?

We will refund you in full if you cancel no less than 14 days before the start of the first session of the course, after which no refunds will be issued. Once booked, you cannot transfer to another course.

What if the course is cancelled?

We reserve the right to cancel the course for any reason (for example, insufficient bookings or adverse weather conditions). We will endeavour to give at least 7 days notice if the course is cancelled and in the event of cancellation we will, of course, issue you a full refund.

Accessibility

Our aim is to bring printmaking to as many people as possible but, due to the nature of the building, Leeds Print Workshop is not wheelchair accessible. There is a step up into the building and four steps down to the toilets, and no accessible toilet facilities. Should you have any questions, or wish to discuss accessibility before booking, please don't hesitate to email us at hello@leedsprintworkshop.org

Please note: we regret that, for safety reasons, only those over the age of 16 will be permitted to undertake the course.
