WORKSHOP OF TEXTILE PRINTING
Tutor: textile designer Eelike Virve

During a one day textile printing workshop the participants are taught to design small-sized textile objects. Suitable materials would be T-shirts, pillowcases, table mats, scarves, bags etc. 
In both art and design, printing is one of the quickest possible techniques to come to a final result. At the same time, printing gives room for experimenting through various techniques, materials and colors.
During the course one can learn some easier ways of using silk-screen and template printing techniques. The course will start by choosing a shape and stylizing it to make it suitable for the chosen printing technique. The participants are taught how to make a pattern and what is a reprise of patterns, also how to create a balanced composition using several different elements. Another part of the course is learning both multicolor and rainbow printing; foil and flock printing as special techniques.
The colors used in the workshop will be opaque and transparent water-based colors. 
Please bring along a small size textile for printing (T-shirt, bag, pillowcase, etc).
