About the Course

Nicole will be providing her A3 Heat Press for the workshop, the press will heat up to 140 degrees. You will experiment using textile metallic foiling materials sourced from Scrap Store. Cottons, linens, leather, silk and suede work really well. Your task is to find interesting surfaces to experiment and print onto using the different coloured metallic foils.

Foiling: Transferring metallic film to fabric using the heat press. This can be applied using foil adhesive (a bit like glue) painting your design directly onto your item of clothing or foil using a paint brush. Placing the metallic foiling on top of your adhesive, then popping this under the heat press for 20 seconds, leaving your image looking shiny!

Scrap Store promote the re-use of resources for environmental and community benefit. As a non-for-profit organisation staffed mainly by volunteers, they take a wide rage of donated clean waste materials from businesses and individuals. The materials can be used for; educational, artists, play, creative, social or therapeutic activities. Making items that may be sold solely for charitable benefits.

If you would like to be a member of Scrap Store the team will take your details and they will organise this for you after the workshop.

Nicole Line is a sessional tutor at University for the creative Arts working with the Fashion & Textile Foundation students in Epsom and BA Textile students in Farnham.

I see the students I teach as an extension of my practice and it’s exciting to see how they use materials within their own work.’
