Experiment with Sublimation Printing and Foiling in this heat press workshop by Nicole Line. This workshop is suitable for designers, students and for those who are curious about surface design for textiles. Mark making onto man-made fabrics and other materials to create layers of transparent colour, shapes and pattern using heat. A range of processes used to create your designs onto material creating hand cut stencils, screen printing and painting, transforming material with colour and texture. We encourage you to see what you have at home to up-cycle and transform through print, rather than buying something new. You are also welcome to bring your own polyester materials from home and final pieces to print onto.
