‘Thermofax’ is a generic term for screen printing stencils created with a heat process, using a mesh made by the Japanese company Riso. The material consists of two layers – a polyester mesh much like regular screen printing fabric, and a heat sensitive film coating. It is a popular method for printing on textiles but can also be used to good effect on paper.
Thermal screens are perfect for printing finely detailed images onto fabric, paper and many other surfaces. Easy to use screens mean you can create fabulous original cloth for use in art textiles, quilts, wearables and home furnishings or exciting papers for craft.
In this one day workshop you will create a range of printed fabrics and papers and learn how to create your own designs. Perfect for making gifts even down to printing the paper and tags.
