*Spaces Still Available* Dye Sub 101


#1

Yesterday I posted two “Dye Sub 101: Bring Your Own Shirt” classes on the calendar. They should show up Saturday afternoon. The dates are Monday, October 23rd at 7pm, and Saturday, October 28th at 10am.

So I saw a spray that you can use for dye sublimation. I realize it’s probably not great. BUUUUUUT - could one spray that on ceramic pieces?
I saw a slab (flat) ceramic map (Imagine each state cut out like a puzzle) and I thought it would be cool to transfer a picture onto each state. That or something like an ornament.

I’m sure this project is already overly complex - one could also do a simple image transfer on a laser cut wood for the same effect and it be like 1/2 the process if not less.

As long as you can get a consistent smooth coating on the piece, and it can go into the heat press, then you could transfer an image in theory. Your mileage my vary in practice.


#4

I’m going to have to try dye sub and ceramics.


#5

The classes are available for sign-up.


#6

Spaces are still available.

@CaryF300 I’ve been looking for dye sub classes a long time, then missed them being listed! Any plans for more classes in the near future? Thanks


#8

There will be two in November, but I’ve got to figure out when to fit them in. I’ve got a couple of trips planned for this month.

Any in December? Someone asked me if the space has “direct to garment” printers? Not sure what that means. Thanks!


#10

Probably not any classes in December from me. I’ve got too much going on in December to commit to anything. The Makerspace does not have a Direct-to-Garment printer.
