Flocking is velvet-like material that sits on a textile surface, to apply the flock students will paint or screen print with adhesive glue, from this we can then flock onto material using the heat press. The flock will be prepped with different colours, or you can create your own painted flock using procion dyes during an all day workshop. Participants are welcome to bring additional material with them if they wish. Feel free to make your own hand cut stencils prior to the workshop, this will allow more time for printing during the day.
This workshop is suitable for teachers, designers, students and for those who are curious about design. The Flocking workshop is also suitable for textiles, fine art, fashion and interiors.
This workshop can be adapted from a 2.5 hour workshop, to an all day workshop. If you are interested in an all day workshop, we could combine two techniques, such as Flocking, Screen Printing or Sublimation Printing. No experience necessary, all materials are provided. Please wear cloths that you don’t mind getting a bit messy in. I also encourage for you to see what you have at home to up-cycle and transform, rather than buying something new.
*Prices vary depending on the length of the workshop + the amount of people. Please email me for more details through the ‘CONTACT’ page.
