Edinburgh Open Workshop
39-41 Assembly Street

The workshop includes:

  • preparing your own designs ready for the screen 
  • transferring your design onto screen using our equipment
  • preparing fabric and setting up your print
  • mixing procion inks
  • following dye and binder recipes
  • solid colour procion dye printing
  • poly-chromatic procion dye printing
  • lots of time to practice your print technique and get a bit inky! 

You’ll have the opportunity to play with colour in an expressive and gestural way and you’ll go away with a 100cm x 50cm piece of linen of your own dye printed design and samples of all of the techniques you’ll have learned that day. You’ll also be given the dye and binder recipes Katie uses.

This workshop covers the style of printing Katie uses most often and she will show you how to achieve multi colour mono-prints by painting onto screen. This class is suitable for those who already have some textile print experience.
