Transfer Dyeing With Artstew

We have created lots of patterning and colouring of fabric in the studio
with transfer painting. Painting the inks and crayons onto paper and then transfering them
by using an iron or steam press onto fabrics.
This video is inspirational on how to use and recycle man made fabrics.

Sharon was at Textile in Focus showing us some of the techniques she uses in her amazing books. This video shows how quick she colours a fabric surface with chalks and Markel sticks. This is also one of Jamie's great informative videos from Colouricious.
