WORKSHOP OF TEXTILE PRINTING
tutor Piret Valk.
Piret Valk is a textile designer and teacher of textile design in Estonian Academy of Art and in Tallinn Folk University. Workshop of textile printing takes place in frame of exhibition „Names and Faces“ in Evald Okas Museum and its´ theme is portrait and writing. During the workshop it is possible to learn how to stylize a portrait, details of a human face or a shape of writing suitable for printing and print it on a textile. You will experiment how to create different versions of one shape when using different techniques, colors, clues or materials. We will search for a characteristic and apposite form to express a face of a person.
For realization of an idea we use transparent, cover, puff and pearl pigment colors, flock and folium printing. Source techniques are: stamp printing, screen printing, silk printing, monotype, iris printing, diatype.
In addition to experimenting by the ends of the course everybody will have a T-shirt, a bag or any other printed textile designed by yourself.
