This workshop will show you how to discharge print. Discharge is a process that can bleach out colour from dyed fabric. You discharge (remove) the dye using screens or by hand to create amazing patterns and prints.
During this workshop you will dye your own fabric (as we do recommend using fabric that you have dyed yourself) and then we will be experimenting with coloured discharge as well as standard discharge.
This course is suitable for all but we are pre exposing the screen for you. If you want to learn the full screen printing process we recommend that you book yourself on to our screen printing for beginner course first.
What to bring:
- Face masks are available at the class, however, students may prefer to bring in their own
- Sketchbook or notebook for recording dye notes and fabric swatches
- Pen or pencil for making notes
- Ruler/Tape measure
- A plastic carrier bag to carry home fabric samples safely
