Tutor Nicole Line will guide participants through the equipment and provide demonstrations in how to heat press onto a mixture of surfaces. You will then begin to draw and design your designs taking inspiration from the current exhibition T-Shirt: Cult-Culture-Subversion.

In the morning students will experiment with sublimation printing using disperse dyes in a range of colours to paint or mark-make onto paper. Designs can then be transferred onto synthetic fabric samples.

In the afternoon participants will experiment using textile metallic foiling on to fabric samples or the sublimation prints from the morning session, with the chance transform t-shirts and other items of clothing you wish to bring to the workshop.

Cottons, linens, leather, silk and suede are all great fabrics to metallic foil onto. Your task is to find interesting clothing and fabric from home, local charity shop or car boot sale. Please bring up to 4 items to transform, such as a shirt, jumper, dress, and scarf or cushion cover. Have a good rummage at home and see what you can find!

Before Metallic Printing onto your final pieces you will have the chance to sample onto fabric, just so you get the hang of everything and experiment with all the colours.

If you have time and the materials to do so, have a go at making your own stencils at home so that you can spend more time metallic foiling your images onto a surface. We recommend you use thin acetate sheets to make the stencils, keep it simple and keep it A3 size and under. Avoid making your stencils from paper.

Beginners welcome and for those who are curious about textiles processes and mark making.

A5 size materials will be provided for you to sample onto. Please bring along your own final pieces to transform.

Nicole Line is a sessional tutor at University for the creative Arts working with the Fashion & Textile Foundation students in Epsom and BA Textile students in Farnham. Nicole also works in other areas of print-making, collaborating with corporate companies and designers. ‘Tactility is very important to me as a designer and textile tutor. I see the students I teach as an extension of my practice and it’s exciting to see how they use materials within their own work.’

Price: £90 includes some materials and exhibition entry.
