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
