Printed Textile Workshop with Heat Reactive Dye
Maven are delighted to work with Shanua McGowan for their Belfast Design Week Maven Session at Framewerk.
This experimental and vibrant workshop is perfect for those with an interest in surface design and textiles. Using heat reactive dyes playfully painted onto paper we will then colourfully bring synthetic fabric to life within the heat press. Layering shapes and stencils onto the fabric with colour can build up patterns. Using objects such as feathers, leaves, stencils, threads, doilies we will build up exciting patterns on fabric. Participants will leave with a variety of imaginative and vibrant fabric samples.
Participants are encouraged to bring along additional materials/objects to the workshop that they would like to be incorporated into their designs. These items must be thin/flat. Examples, which create beautiful patterns, are pieces of lace, leaves, netting, rubber bands, doilies, feathers, stencils etc. A variety of these will be available to experiment with at the workshop but please feel welcome to bring anything specific with you. No experience required.
