Yarn printing

Event Type: Demos

This low-tech workshop will start with a short demo of basic crochet technique, including slip knot, single crochet, and double crochet. We will show some readymade crochet structure that has more complex designs. Then we will demo how to glue and seal the crochet to chipboard for printing with water-thinned down mod podge and let it dry aside. In case the glue needs time to dry, we will bring a readymade matrix for printing. During the printing process, we will show how to ink up the collagraph and wiping tricks. We will show how to print the crochet in both woodcut manner and intaglio manner. In the end, we will demo how to clean up and store the plate safely.
