Screenprinted Resists

3-Daagse workshop o.l.v. Daniel Henry (Be)

This workshop is about using resist print paste in combination with various finishings and embellishments in order to create special texture and colour effects(using PHYSICAL, THERMAL AND CHEMICAL ACTIONS) 

Prerequisites to participate:

Students need to be willing to experiment, discover and explore, and to be curious & open-minded. The participants MUST have the basic knowledge of screenprinting and can be novice in dévoré and coatings. The goal of the workshop is to sample / no finished product will be created. 
Advanced level only!
Spoken language: English.

We start with an introduction:
*looking at samples from Daniel,
*explanations of the pastes and screens.
And at the fabrics everyone brought.

Note: to avoid disappointment Daniel and Karina will provide some special fabrics which will be included in the labfee.

DAY 1 - PHYSICAL ACTIONS & COLOR WORK (DYEING) 

Resist to emerizing

Combining a transparent or coloured resist print with a sandpaper treatment in order to get a peach skin effect or a patina effect

→ works on any fibrous fabric

Resist to brushing

Combining a transparent or colored resist print with a brushing treatment in order to get either an hairy effect (raising the fiber) or lace effect

→ works on any fibrous fabric or low density weaves 

Resist to dyeing

Combining a transparent or white resist print with a dye bath (reactive and acid dye) in order to create shades.

→ works on white and light colored vegetal or animal fabrics


DAY 2 -  
3D WORK : SHRINKING

Resist to shrinking (with lye = sodium hydroxide)

Combining a transparent or colored resist print with a shrinking bath in order to create a crimped fabric.  Also possible on  two layers with only one shrinking and the other one puckering.

→ works only on vegetal fabrics, the looser, the best 

Resist to felting

Combining a transparent or colored resist print with felting in the washing machine in order to create a partially felted fabric.  Also possible on  two layers with only one shrinking and the other one puckering.

→ works only on non treated wool fabrics, the looser, the best


DAY 3 - 
Free technical deepening
