Printing with Rust
Rust has been used for textile printing in many cultures for centuries and is still practiced today in workshops in Italy's Romagna region. A very colour-fast and eco-friendly print paste, it can easily be prepared at home with a few simple ingredients.
During this workshop you will learn how to cultivate quality rust, prepare the paste, print and fix your prints. We will use both print blocks and screens and everyone will take home a bag and either fabric or a cushion cover printed with their original design.
