Surface Design Series: #4 Printing, Stenciling & Image Transfer

This fun series of Surface Design workshops is intended to introduce students to a wide variety of techniques allowing them to experiment and explore the world of surface design. Students will leave each class with sample of each technique which they will have created. Plus, they will be given instructions sheets so they can continue to work with the various techniques at home.
*For all classes, please consider using fabric sourced from thrift shops (ex: sheets, shirts, curtains, etc)

#4 Printing, Stenciling, and Image Transfer 
In this workshop, students will be experimenting with a wide variety of surface design techniques including: stamping on fabric with premade stamps, carving simple stamps, eco-printing, mono-printing, using premade stencils, creating stencils, and image transfer.

For this workshop, students will need to provide:
1) At least 8 pieces of light-colored fabric 6"x6" to 24"x24" in size (students are welcome to bring a few shirts to print upon)
2) A carving/cutting tool (an X-acto Knife works well for this)
3) Cutting mat
4) An apron or wear clothing that can be dirtied by dyes
5) Rubber or disposable gloves
6) Some plastic baggies to carry home wet fabric

Students may also want to consider bringing:
1) An old/craft iron to help with heat-setting their designs and drying their items. The instructor will have an iron to share but having several in class will make things go faster.
2) A few natural items such as leaves, sticks, or flowers
3) A few other items which they want to experiment with. Suggestions include: a bit of rope, a few rocks, items with an interesting texture
