    Maybe you want to make a keepsake throw pillow, dress your table with placemats full of vintage snaps, or make your own fabric to incorporate in quilts and other projects. Whatever the reason, this is the class where you’ll learn the tricks.

    Using several methods, you will explore techniques for transferring toner-quality images from paper to fabric. “Toner quality” means prints from a laser printer, in either color or black and white, or from a copy machine. If you do not have easy access to a machine, you can have items printed at a copy center such as Pony Express, Kinkos, or FedEx. Images should be printed on cheap paper.

    Techniques include paper lamination, image transfer, and trace monoprint. The results are generally unpredictable—but usually interesting. Before you begin image transfers, there are two important things you need to know: 1) not every transfer will turn out the way you want it to; and 2) the more you practice, happier you’ll be with your transfers. What defines a "good" transfer is in the eye of the beholder, so be sure you are open minded to the individual results. Price includes $15 lab fee.
