Workshop participants will learn how to dye a base color on silk yardage, in preparation for discharge photo-screen printing, using a hot water exhaust acid dye process. Photo-screen print stencils, using pre-existing images made with photoshop or by photocopy and formatted as a transparency, are used to print discharge paste on 1-2 yard lengths of stretched silk charmeuse, broadcloth, or chiffon. Repeat and organic print patterns will be explored as will printing to a garment pattern or for a large scarf.
