Transfers Stencils and Stitch

Angie Hughes

Thursday 17th November 2011
An introduction to the wonderful world of transfer printing. I remember my early forays into this subject using simple polyester fabrics twenty years ago nowadays we have lovely fabrics such as Kunin felt and Evolon to play with. You will learn how to make simple stencils and resist from plain paper and the best ways of using disperse dyes to transfer patterns with an iron onto fabrics. Layering colours in this way produces the most delicious misty surfaces for stitch. Ir-resist-ible!!

We will begin with the basics learning about your machine and its gadgets, getting the hang of free motion embroidery before then we will start to get experimental. We will aim to create a file or book of samples and reference notes, then work on 2 or 3 finished pieces for exhibition at Bramble Patch later in the year.. Students can be beginners or those who need to be pushed a little with their knowledge and understanding of this exciting and creative subject.
