Title: Innovative Methods of Developing Patterns for Textile Screen Printing
Authors: Ashitey, Sarah
Issue Date: 21-Jan-2013
Abstract: The conventional process of transferring designs unto screen has been the normal practice over the years. This method though useful, produces designs that are static and rigid. The research idea was focused on exploring other techniques of transferring designs unto screen using natural objects such as leaves, pieces of paper, saw dust, local sponge and threads among others. Other techniques such as printing objects directly unto fabric and developing screen manually were explored. The outcome of the result was discussed and analysed critically.The research was based on the qualitative research approach and made use of the experimental and descriptive methods of research. Observation and unstructured interview were the main instruments used for data collection. The study revealed that, developing and printing designs directly from leaves, weeds, twigs, traditional sponge and thread among others provided a collection of unique designs with aesthetic values. This project will enable textile students, teachers and designers acquire new and interesting techniques in creating textile designs.
