About this course

This Christmas inspired 1-day course will introduce you to specialist equipment, materials and techniques used for transferring designs/images to textiles. You will explore a unique specialist dye system/process used in the fashion and textiles industry. A highly diverse and versatile dye system that allows you to print a painted image from paper on to fabric in seconds with the use of a heat press. A tutor will guide you through the methodology of the process with demonstrations, along with one-to-one feedback, allowing you to develop technical proficiency and confidence in transfer printing for textiles. You will produce a small collection of printed fabrics with a Christmas twist, along with a number of painted designs. You will also be using festive coloured felt to create decorations, a stocking or bunting with the use of the transfer dyes, basic sewing techniques and appliqué. You will also have the opportunity of creating Christmas gifts for friends and family.

During the course you will learn technical skills such as: generating autographic designs and images for print, colour mixing and preparing dyes, transfer printing with specialist equipment and appliqué. This is a creative experimental course, with the opportunity of printing and creating your own self-directed designs with a Christmas twist.

By the end of the day you will:
• Produce effective drawings and painted designs to a given theme.
• Demonstrate an understanding of print practice methods for textiles.
• Demonstrate technical skills in the preparation of artwork and dyes for print.
• Use materials and equipment safely
