•Sublimation Printing: Disperse Dyeing


•Metallic Foiling

Over the course of three Thursday evenings in June, Nicole Line will be teaching a series of experimental heat press workshops at Stag & Bow. In this short course you will create a range of samples, exploring surface design with colour and pattern. All materials are provided in the workshops, however you are also welcome to bring your own materials from home and final pieces to print onto. We do encourage for you to see what you have at home to up-cycle and transform through print, rather than buying something new. These workshops are suitable for teachers, designers, students and for those who are curious about design, no experience necessary, all levels welcome. Feel free to make your own hand cut stencils prior to the workshops, this will allow more time for printing, and wear cloths that you don’t mind getting a bit messy in.

This textile workshop is suitable for designers who want to translate their design ideas from paper onto fabric using the heat press. On this course, we will experiment with transfer printing, using liquid disperse dyes and ready made paper dyes. Disperse dyes can be liquid, which are applied to paper through printing or painting onto the surface, then your paper designs are transferred to fabric using the heat press. Colours can be layered and flat objects and stencils can be used as a resist. For best results, these dyes work best on synthetic fabrics such as Polyester Suede, Acetate Satin, Polyester Sateen and Polyester Crepe de Chine.

Flocking is velvet-like material that sits on a textile surface, to apply the flock students will paint or screen print with adhesive glue, from this we can then flock onto material and paper using the heat press. The flock will be prepped with different colours, or you can create your own painted flock using procion dyes.

This workshop involves screen printing or painting your designs in adhesive glue and heat transferring foil onto the surface of your fabric. This process also works on paper. Nicole will guide you through designing, printing and foiling your own set of designs onto the surface, testing onto fabric before printing onto your final piece.

Nicole Line Workshops
Nicole, a graduate from University for the Creative Arts Farnham studied Textiles for Fashion and Interiors and frequently runs a selection of workshop events around London. The idea is to show local communities how to use Nicole's equipment without being in a professional studio. The workshops are aimed at beginners through to experienced artists and the relaxed environment allows both abilities to mix together and collaborate, sharing ideas, techniques and developing concepts. At the end of the workshop participants will have learnt how to use the equipment, where to source the materials, how to set up a studio space at home. See below for a list of Nicole's upcoming events...
