Textile Surface Design: Experimental Techniques

Page Content: 

In this webinar Tim will demonstrate a broad range of experimental screen printing and pigment dying that work great for creating medium to large-scale fabrics. In addition to screen printing, Tim will show a series of monoprinting techniques like canning, spraying, quick masks and brushing that don’t require screens but can create beautiful textures and fabrics. Finally he'll show how to pigment dye fabric on a large and small scale. The goal is to simplify and demystify fabric surface design so you can get started immediately.
