Images on Fabric
Print and transfer images onto fabric from your inkjet printer
When your crafting moves into mixed media, there may come a time when you want to produce an image onto fabric. But where do you start? Can you really put a piece of cloth into your inkjet printer and get a good result, and not a mess of tangled fibers? dead What about an image transfer onto fabric? What products, techniques, and fabrics work the best? Can you use these images on a washable bed quilt? surprise

Join me in this class as we print and transfer your own photos, clip art images, computer generated text and more onto fabric. We'll use a variety of products and techniques that work with your home inkjet printer.

Students may use one or all of the products & techniques we will work with in class. All the projects can be made with any method:
  1. Direct inkjet printing onto various commercially prepared printable fabric sheets such as printable cotton, canvas, and/or organza
  2. Direct inkjet printing onto fabric we'll prepare with Bubble Jet Set
  3. Image transfer to fabric using acrylic medium and water
  4. Image transfers using various commercially prepared transfer materials
  5. Printing and transferring with some newer products you may not be familiar with: Lutradur and Transfer Artist Paper (TAP)
Each week students will make various projects such as fabric post cards, a simple folded fabric book, fabric art quilt, and more. You can use fabric glue, fusible, or machine stitching on your projects. Instructions will be given for each option.
(Please note: We will only work with techniques and products for an inkjet printer with either pigment or dye-based inks.)
Class start date: Friday April 20, 2012
Duration: 4 weeks
Price: $25

Hope to "see" you in class!
