Monoprinting Fabric is an enjoyable and valuable learning experience. I will miss the daily anticipation of what new technique was coming next. Linda provided an excellent foundation to build on, and I am grateful for her expertise and willingness to share it with us. I look forward to another class with you. Kathy I. from the US
Gelatin Printing on Fabric Loved it! 3 key approaches I have learned
- bubbles/imperfections in the gelatine plate can be a good thing – it does NOT have to be perfectly smooth,
- doing a brayer rubbings on a piece of fabric and
- finally being able to get a coordinated set of prints.
Thank you everyone in the class for your comments and adding to the learning process. Erin J. from Australia
