Course description

Fabric Manipulation: Print and Heat Setting:

Create a contemporary range of tactile, structured textile surfaces based on shibori, smocking, pleating, stitching , crumpling and crushing techniques and using heat setting. Combine with simple print and hand painting to enhance form and introduce colour to the surface.

We will look at a range of techniques found in shibori and smocking for structural inspiration, and explore folding, pleating, stitching, crumpling and crushing, together with heat setting processes to reshape the fabric surface into textured 2D surfaces or more 3D structures. This will include the making of a 2 part origami mould. As the work progresses, you will be introduced to ideas of enhancing the form using colour through simple and immediate methods of printing and hand painting, creating a range of samples with a variety of potential applications; from fashion, and accessories to textile sculpture and fabric design. Suitable for all levels.

By the end of the course you will be able to

  • Use a range of methods for manipulating fabric
  • Describe some of the contexts to which these techniques might be applied
  • Combine hand painting and transfer printing techniques with fabric manipulation
  • Make and use a 2 part origami mould
  • Create a range of tactile, printed, structured textile surfaces using these techniques.
