Printing pastes : October 30 and 31 - 2021

WORKSHOP painting on textiles with natural dyes. These freshly made (printing) pastes work on wool, silk, linen, cotton, hemp or paper. Many shades, wash and light fast.

The workshop is held in the lovely studio of Tinctoria in the centre of Amsterdam with a max of 6 people.

We will be working with 6 water based pastes with natural dye extracts, gallnuts and aluminium salt. We will be making them together after some theory. They mix very well into to a big palet of colours, purple and green included. Madder, cochineal, genista(yellow), iron/tannic, indigo and a discharge paste that enhances the colours on silk and wool but bleaches them on cellulose fibers.

The first day we produce colour blankets on the 5 different fabrics. From there everyone will be able to make a basic little archive. After that you focus on your own work. The pastes can be used for printing or painting. Minimum 35 minutes of steam fixation are necessary to devellop the colour. Washing the textiles afterwards is the final treatment. The pastes combine very well with ecoprints or their blankets.

We work on wool, silk, organic cotton, linen and hemp. The cotton and linen have been prepared with soymilk.

Information given of all the supliers. These are : dyeplant extracts, guar gom, aluminium salt, urea, tannic acid, alum, citric acid, cream of tartar, ironsulfate and industrial fixatif for the indigo paste.

Please let me know if you want to receive more info on this course. Lunch and refreshments and modest amount of fabrics are included in the price. Extra fabrics can be bought.
