Print Workshop


This week ive been printing in the workshop, we have been learning how to mix specific dyes for specific fabrics, so many rules apply and ingredients I have never heard of before in my life! It’s a long process but using a power hose to blast your screens clean is as fun as sounds. Mixing the correct colours at first was daunting, straight from the pot gives you a horrendous neon colour which caused me to go heavy on the indalca to dilute it. My first few prints turned out quite faded as I may have went overboard trying to dull down. The process was all about layering so it kind of worked out for me, the lighter the colour the more layers could you could see. I found the process very enjoyable, although all that time on one print that could so easily go wrong may send me over the edge. Next week knit…
