Enter the world of textile printing for less than $10. You can create exciting fabrics and garments using found objects in and around your home.
Explore the world of textile printing using objects easily found in and around your home. For less than $10, you can print directly on natural-fiber fabrics, existing garments, or experiment on your knit swatches. Explore adding texture, creating repeat patterns, or transferring plant images to fabric. We will also try our hand at Poor Man’s marbling with shaving cream.
This class is like art camp for adults. You will be amazed at the textures and designs you can add to your repertoire. Use the printed pieces to add to your sewn or knit projects.
