img_3779-1

Here’s more detail about my Heat Press Workshop in Sheffield in March. The images above are projects where the fabric has been printed using the heat press. These are a inspiration for whatever project you would like to choose for the workshop.

You can book the workshop now through the venue website – Stitched Up and Fleeced.

Heat Press – Half Day Introduction

Date: Saturday 9 March
Duration: 2.5 hours, 10am until 12.30pm
Location: Stitched Up and Fleeced, 49 Nethergreen Road, Sheffield, S11 7EH
Cost: £30

This is an opportunity to create your own design and transfer it onto satin, cotton or a fabric of your choice.

What you will need:
Bring some inspiration, images, drawings, stencils, colour samples that you like. Ideally these should be on paper, rather than on your phone or iPad.
If you have paint brushes that you particularly like to use please bring those with you.    If you prefer to wear gloves or have sensitive skin please bring gloves.
The heat press requires ventilation so if it’s a chilly day please bring a jumper.
As we are working with dyes it is advisable to wear old clothes, and you may also wish to wear an apron.

If you wish to bring your own fabric to print on – your design should be a maximum size of 28 x 36cm. Manmade fibres work best but natural fabrics can be used and can be pre-treated at the workshop with a product.

The workshop includes:

  • Two A4 pieces of polyester satin
  • One A4 piece of cotton
  • One 25 cm length of bra elastic
  • Paper for your design
  • Use of transfer paints
  • Use of the heat press
  • Tea, coffee, cordial and biscuits

What you will learn:

You will learn about the products you need to create your own hand painted or hand-printed fabric
The fabrics that respond to this process and how to prepare them
How to use the heat press
Inspiration of what your designs could become

The workshop is undertaken at your own risk and by signing up to the workshop you are responsible for your own safety and wellbeing.
