Summer Intensive: Textile Design: Silk Screen, Block Printing & Batik (ages 15+)
August 12 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Do you love pattern, design, color and fabric? Enroll in this class because it combines them all. You’ll learn how to silk screen your designs by using either drawing emulsion or a photo silk screening process to create your screen. You’ll explore batik, the process of producing colored designs on textiles by applying dye, after first drawing with wax to block off areas to be left uncolored or differently colored. And finally, you’ll also sample the process of block printing, either using our own wood blocks and stamps, or by creating your own on some of the newer easy-to-cut surfaces.
