What's Included

In this 12-hour class, students will learn how to print with dyes on fabric, instead of inks. Using dye printing pastes instead of inks allows for vibrant and transparent colors, without the "sit-on-top" effect that happens when printing with ink. Students will learn about different dyes available for fabric, different thickeners, how to prepare the dye print paste, how to print with it on fabric and the different ways to set it. Pre-Requisite: Screen Printing 101 or basic knowledge of screen printing encouraged. Basics of screen printing will be shortly reviewed. // Instructor: Hannah Schultz, www.hannahschultz.com

About This Organizer

Textile Arts Center aspires to unify and empower the textile community, and advocate for the handmade. 


Textile Arts Center (TAC) is a NYC-based resource facility dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of textiles through creative educational programs for children and adults. At TAC, we aspire to unify the textile community and advocate for the handmade by providing accessible, skills-based classes that reinvigorate engagement with traditional crafts. Techniques like weaving, sewing, and dyeing are practical, connective, and process-driven -- common denominators for designers, artists, and creative practitioners around the world. Because these activities are so widely used, they help to foster community and bring creativity back into our daily lives. They are part of our collective history and vital to our ongoing expressions of design, art, and culture.
