About

Transfer printing is a fabulous technique for achieving instant, bright colour onto synthetic fabric, relatively mess free. Although some quilters will only use cotton, incorporating a diverse range of fabrics into wall hangings can create interesting surfaces and textures.

This masterclass will explain how to use transfer paints, including a variety of paint effects; using masks such as leaves; and the differences that can occur due to the individual properties of some of the amazing array of synthetic fabrics available.

This knowledge will be put to practical use to make pages that can then be stitched into a fabric book.

Key Learnings:

  • Properties of transfer paints
  • A variety of techniques of mark making
  • How to use masks with transfer printing
  • How to exploit some of the properties of different synthetic fabrics
Materials & Preparation

Materials

  • Transfer dye (sometimes sold as disperse dye) in at least 3 colours
  • Copier Paper
  • Water pot and water
  • Small pots to make up the transfer dye into paint, such as yoghurt tubs
  • Spoons for mixing the dye
  • Paint brushes or sponge brushes
  • Apron and gloves whilst mixing and painting if necessary
  • Paper to protect your table
  • Scissors
  • Synthetic Fabrics – a variety to try so you can see the different effects. These could include (but are not limited to): polycotton, polyorganza, acrylic felt, lutradur, evolon, zeelon, stitch-in interfacing – basically any fabric made from manmade fibres. A small piece of several different types would be good to try out (ie 15 x 20cm)
  • Non-woven fabric for the book. Gillian used strips of lutradur cut to 12cm by the width of fabric, plus a piece of heavy weight stitch-in Vilene (S80) 15 x 30cm for the cover. The sizes don’t need to be exact
  • Leaves and seed heads to use as masks – the seed heads don’t need to be flat
  • Iron
  • Ironing board
  • Baking parchment or silicone sheet
  • Needle and thick thread, such as a cotton perle for stitching the book
  • Ruler (to neaten off pages of book)
  • Optional – hole punch - basic or fancy shape

Gillian is offering a kit of 3 transfer dyes, a sponge brush and a selection of synthetic fabrics to try, including sufficient to make two books on her website for £23 plus postage. Buy the pack.
