|Abstract: ||Designing could be viewed as an attitude of the mind, not a method; primarily a form of enquiry about materials used and also about the sources; terms of personal expression and reaction to the society; basically not an end in itself but a means of making individuals more aware of the expressive sources at one’s disposal.
Textile designing for fabric printing is an area in which the artist can use diverse means to obtain motifs that can be arranged into patterns or designs to express his thoughts and feelings. Such patterns can be transferred onto fabric by block, stencil and screen. Problems in designing for fabric printing centre around inadequate knowledge of what basically is textile designing for printing, development of ideas or motifs, good arrangement of motifs to achieve pleasing effects to transfer of designs onto fabric by means of any of the printing methods.
Specific motif arrangements, repeat designs and printing methods have been discussed in much detail. Experiments in designing and printing have been done and samples included in the report as illustration and example. The author’s own personal experience in fabric printing has been documented in addition to literature from other sources.|
