I am running a Devore print workshop at Hot Bed Press in Salford.
Saturday 17th - Sunday 18th March.
Devore is the process of applying a print paste which devours certain fibres, it is used to create textured velvet scarves amongst other applications. Come along and discover some of the secrets of textile surface texture.
The workshop will explore different techniques of applying devore paste to a variety of fabrics including block printing, hand painting and using pre-prepared screens and paper stencils.
Saturday will be a day of exploring fabrics and techniques and on Sunday ideas can be resolved to produce an artisan silk or velvet scarf.
The essence of the workshop will be experimenting with the techniques along with an introduction to dyeing fabric to compliment the devore print. These processes can be pursued by individuals with some basic equipment and ingredients.
Participants will take home a finished scarf and may also want to bring along some old jeans to explore applying 'that distressed look'.
