Silkscreen & natural inks

Coming soon 

In the Silkscreen Photography workshop, the youngsters create a silkscreen of different shapes. We start with choosing together with the participants what style of photos/ shapes we will use and what themes they find interesting. They then process the photos/ shapes and look for the layering in their patterns. This layering is printed on fabrics via screen printing. To do this, they use stencils to create all the layers for their screen printing and apply screen printing techniques to print their design on fabric with natural inks, which they have made themselves from fruits and vegetables.

Shibori & Natural dye baths

10th of June 

During this workshop, With Roua will work with different Shibori techniques. Shibori is an ancient Japanese dyeing technique in which you create patterns on clothing by folding, binding, clamping, and sewing. With this technique, you avoid dyeing some parts of the fabric and you create the most beautiful manual patterns. Everyone creates their print on their T-shirt, bag, or fabric by using the different Shibori techniques and dye it with natural dye baths. 

Age: from 15 to 25 years
