Textile Printing Techniques
In this class series, we will be exploring the rich connections to be found across printmaking and textile arts. With a focus on experimentation, this class will be an introduction to a variety of printmaking methods, applying them to fabric as our primary surface. Exploring a range of cultural legacies of printed textile crafts, our projects will highlight both the techniques and broader significance of textile production. Using the basics of stenciling, relief stamping, screen printing, and dying techniques, we will practice methods for manipulating fabric materials. Additionally, using a range of registration methods, we will learn methods for designing and producing a continuous textile pattern for uses in fiber arts, alternative quilting methods, and garment construction. Students will come away from this course with knowledge of the relationships between printmaking and textiles, as well as a variety of methods for analog, fabric-based print production. All skill levels welcome.
