This weekend (16th and 17th January 2016) I am running a course that is great fun, very creative, and is full of information. It’s a T shirt printing course at Brisbane Institute of Art. I often print my designs on shirts and bags for events, performances, or simply for the fun of seeing how they will look.
This two day course covers the use of photoemulsion and covers design and printing, everything needed to get started with making high quality t shirt prints. Have you ever wondered how to print on T-shirts, what inks to use, how to make those fine detailed images that you see, how to use your own photographs or drawings to print onto T-shirts? This two day course covers the T-shirt fundamentals, from simple stenciled designs to complex designs with words, cartoons and photographs, how to set up a T-shirt ‘jig’, how to use photographic emulsion and sun exposures explained. mixing and using blends of colour, and how to heat set the shirts. Everything you will need to know to get started at home to professional looking original images onto T-shirts with the minimum of equipment.
