Through a series of dye workshops, students are encouraged to investigate innovative approaches to colouring and patterning cloth. This subject introduces students to methods of generating resist textile patterning and unique printing techniques such as binding, stitching, clamp resist, contact printing and critic acid printing. The studio explores natural fibbers and fabrics and their perfomance with to a variety of natural dye colours and mordants. Through material experimentation, students develop textile concepts and colour sensibilities in a sophisticated and individual way. An emphasis throughout the subject is placed on a professional and sustainable print room practice.
