Workshop Printing Techniques Hand Block And Stencil Print

Among the various printing techniques used for printing the textile materials, two types of printing techniques-Hand Block and stencil printing were demonstrated in the workshop held on 24th Oct’ 2015. The workshop was conducted by the SIFT (Suryadatta Institute on Fashion Technology) for the students. The workshop was taken by Mrs. Sheetal Athalye (SIFT, Faculty).

Hand block printing process is the earliest, simplest and slowest of all printing methods. A design is drawn on, or transferred to prepared wooden blocks which are carved by a blockcutter. The printer applies colour to the block and presses it firmly and steadily on the cloth, striking it smartly on the back with a wooden mallet. In stencil printing, a pattern is cut from a sheet of stout paper or thin metal with a sharp-pointed knife, the uncut portions representing the part that will be left uncoloured. The sheet is laid on the fabric and colour is brushed through its interstices.

In the workshop, around 4 different designs were shown. Using the printing techniques, two samples for Hand block printing and two samples for stencil printing with spray and stencil printing. Students were satisfied and are enjoyed the 2 hrs session of the workshop.

Tie-dye is a modern term invented in the mid-1960s in the United States for a set of ancient resist-dyeing techniques, and for the products of these processes. The process of tie-dye typically consists of folding, twisting, pleating, or crumpling fabric or a garment and binding with string or rubber bands, followed by application of dyes. The manipulations of the fabric prior to application of dye are called resists, as they partially or completely prevent the applied dye from coloring the fabric. Tie-dye can be used to create a wide variety of designs on fabric, from standard patterns such as the spiral, peace sign, diamond, and the marble effect to beautiful works of art.
