Heat Press Printing
Thursday 13 July, 10am - 4pm
Come and enjoy a day with artist Clare Walsh as you explore colours and textures using disperse dyes and the heat press to create unique designs.
After a demonstration of the heat press, you will experiment with painting dye papers, cutting papers and adding texture. You will be guided on how to add colour to natural leaves and in the afternoon you will print original designs onto fabric, using several techniques, to produce some vibrant and interesting results.
This workshop is suitable for anyone who enjoys learning new techniques, and playing with colour and design.
Refreshments and lunch is included. Please inform our team of any allergies or dietary requirements when you book your place.
