Transfer Printing

Students develop their own pattern work - but should come with an image or item to work from. Digital photography is encouraged throughout this workshop. Students will be shown how to manipulate their own images for design using Photoshop, HP Image Zone, or PhotoEditor - school to provide facilities. The technique of transfer printing will then be demonstrated, and students will have the opportunity to transfer their own CAD enhanced image onto fabric. Half or full day session.
