I have taught thousands of people around the world to add value to their textile products.
Create your own bespoke cloth in-house and on-demand using these simple, direct techniques. If you are a fashion designer working with a shoestring budget, you will love these techniques.
“As young designer wanting to make it big, I went for a lino-printing class presented by Melanie Brummer, as I have always wanted to be able to print my own fabrics.
I had some background in printing, but taking the class had been eye-opening to me. In a relaxed setting, Melanie taught us the finer techniques of creating a lino-template than can be used over and over again. Thanks to Melanie, I had the confidence to incorporate and make lino-printing one of the core selling points in my children’s label Wolf Wolf Kids. The techniques she taught included invaluable lessons and tips on printing for a production (i.e. multiple consecutive prints of the same lino), and because of that I can now print 100+ prints with ease, which adds to a quick and efficient production process.
Especially dealing with kids clothing, which means clothing are washed more often and needs to be more durable, one needs to be sure that the prints will last and not wash out. Thanks to the tips we learnt with Melanie, we are confident that our prints are colourfast and do not wash out easily.
There is nothing more rewarding than being able to create images on clothing that are uniquely yours and which enhances your brand, and without the Slipstream printing course, we would have never been able to have the confidence and know-how to do this.” Marle Coetzee, Wolf Wolf Kids
