Description

This demonstration utilizes relief printmaking in combination with found, repurposed fabrics and basic machine and hand sewing to create quilted collages. Utilizing old bed sheets and hand-me-down fabrics, hardware store plywood, basic black ink, and green cleanup with vegetable oil and dish soap, fabric printing is both a low-cost and sustainable alternative to paper. Piecing and collaging elements helps to overcome size limitations, opening up the possibilities for ambitious sculptures and immersive print-based installations.
