  • Sublimation Printing and Metallic Foiling

In this one-day workshop, students will experiment with sublimation print techniques using disperse dyes and papers to print onto fabric. After a morning of experimentation and designing, the afternoon will be spent combining techniques, foiling and fusing materials, translating your designs from paper to fabric using the heat press. This workshop is suitable for teachers, designers, students and for those who are curious to learn more about surface design.

All materials will be provided, participants are welcome to bring additional material with them to embellish if they wish. Participants are encouraged to make their own hand-cut stencils prior to the workshop, this will allow more time for printing during the day but is not compulsory. By the end of the session, you will have a collection of fabric samples that can be used to develop your portfolios or design know-how.
