    Workshop: Intro to Screenprinting

    11:00am - 12:00pm

    [register at http://mkt.com/craft-austin/workshop-intro-to-screenprinting] In this workshop, we’ll briefly cover the history of the craft and then move on to practicalities. We’ll discuss stencil options, and the characteristics of your process that will affect your final print. Students will create their own paper stencils and then practice printing on paper (greeting cards!), before printing on their choice of flour sack towels, wine bags, small zipper bags, or tote bags. You’ll walk away with your stencil, your practice paper prints, and your two final prints. And you’ll have the knowledge to come back any time to do more screen printing here, using CRAFT’s screens, squeegees, and paints. small print: Reservations required. Class sizes are limited. This is a class for grown-ups. Reservations are refundable up to 48 hours in advance of the start of the workshop. [register at http://mkt.com/craft-austin/workshop-intro-to-screenprinting]

    CRAFT, 1628 South 1st Street, Austin, TX 78704, United States 7:00pm - 9:30pm

    [Register at Learn the basics of fabric dyeing, ombre technique, and how to use shibori methods to create unique and beautiful pattens. Shibori is basically Japanese tie dying, but its history goes back to the 8th century. In fact, the reason we know it dates to the 8th century is because cloth dyed with these techniques was donated by the Emperor Shomu to the Todai-ji, a Buddhist temple in Nara, Japan. From the Emperor of Japan to you, glorious resident of Austin! CRAFT will provide four flour sack hand towels for you to dye and take, and you'll leave the workshop with the skills to do more dyeing on your own. small print: Reservations required.
