Giving Soul to Textiles through Coatings

3daagse workshop o.l.v. Daniel Henry

This 3-day screenprinting class is about the following:

How to change the hand and the look of a textile with finishings and embellishments, printing with polymers and glues (water based pastes only), playing with the mesh of the screen, from flat to micro 3D printing customizing the paste to create unique textures.

Prerequisites     :   willingness to experiment, discover and explore, curious, open-minded.  The participants MUST have the basic knowledge of screenprinting and can be novice in coatings.
The goal of the workshop is to  sample / no finished product will be created

First day
workshop introduction : looking at samples and photos explanations of pastes and different types of screens looking at the grounds everyone brought

apprenticeship     :  - demos and group trials of coatings combined with the heatpress (aspects : satinized, glossy, metallic, flocked) Daniel will be showing the basic way but also some personal twists - demos and group trials of coatings without heatpressing (aspects : super matte and super glossy) - demos of making pastes more special by adding dry extracts (powders) in the pastes to create special textures - demos and group trials with different types of screens

Second day
apprenticeship     :  - printing on difficult grounds (for example transparent, chiffon, tulle, lace or very textured fabrics, velvet, grainy linen, fur or pleated) - how to print very superficial or very deep - combining coatings with physical manipulations such as brushing, emerizing or crushing - micro 3D printing -bonding 2 fabrics together with printed glue or double sided web

Third day
free technical deepening and combinations of techniques
conclusion

collecting diverse textiles or garments (grounds for printing)
select what interest you :
