Printing Disperse Dyes


Explore multiple ways of printing with disperse dyes onto synthetic fabrics from transfer printing painted papers to direct printing onto fabric. Techniques include monoprinting, xerox transfer and working with an open silkscreen. Play with texture, shape and line. Multiple prints can be made from one image due to the unique transfer properties of disperse dyes. Class time will include color mixing, multi layered printing using stencils, resists and dye release methods, troubleshooting and discussion of finishing and presenting your work. From simple patterns to complex layering, this process is enticing.
