Metallic Printing Workshop

  • The Doodle Bar Ltd 60 druid street London United Kingdom (map)

This workshop is an introduction to a textile technique using a heat press which heats up to 140 degrees. At the beginning of the workshop Nicole will show you a collection of samples, followed by a demonstration. Then as a group we will warm up by making a few drawings in black ink focusing on pattern. These patterns will influence your design ideas for the foiling. We will paint your designs using the adhesive glue onto the surface, or create stencils to screen print with. In the workshop you will have the opportunity to foil up to 4-6 items.

Foiling is transferring metallic film to fabric/paper using a heat press. This can be applied using foil adhesive (a bit like glue) painting or screen printing your designs directly onto a surface. Once the adhesive is dry the foil is placed on top and pressed for 10 seconds.
