Learn to print on cloth with clay resist paste and over dye with organic indigo! The first day, students will learn how to make collograph plates out of easy to find materials, discuss cloth stretching techniques, review fabric gridding methods, and learn simple textile printing approaches to create their clay resist printed cloth. The second day, students will learn how to make and maintain an organic fructose indigo vat and will work in groups to dye, rinse, and hang their clay resisted artworks. Cotton and silk noil fabrics will be used and students will leave with samples of printed cloth with unique designs for use in future projects. Please see the SSA website for a list of material.
