Event description

Description

Nicole will be providing the Heat Press for this workshop, the press will heat up to 140 degrees. You will experiment using textile metallic foiling on your items of clothing - cottons, linens, leather, silk and suede work really well. Your task is to find interesting clothing and fabric from home, your local charity shop or car boot sale. Please bring 2 items to transform, such as a shirt, jumper, dress, scarf or cushion cover. Have a good rummage at home and see what you can find! Note books and cards also work.


In the print workshop Nicole will take you through the equipment and show a demonstration in how to print. You will then begin to draw and design your stencils ready for printing onto a surface. Before printing onto your final pieces you will have the chance to sample onto fabric and paper first, just so you get the hang of everything and experiment with all the colours.

Foiling: Transferring metallic film to fabric using the heat press. This can be applied using foil adhesive (a bit like glue) painting your design directly onto your item of clothing or foil using a paint brush. Placing the metallic foiling on top of your adhesive, then popping this under the heat press for 20 seconds, leaving your image looking shiny!

Prep.

If you have time and the materials to do so, have a go at making your own stencils at home so that you can spend more time metallic foiling your images onto a surface.

I recommend you use thin acetate sheets to make the stencils, keep it simple and keep it A3 size and under.

Try and avoid using paper for this workshop when making your stencils.

If you have any questions about the stencil making, feel free to call me or send me a message.
