Take your creativity to another level using the heat transfer process. This technique allows you to transfers different materials such as Swarovski crystals, vinyl, heat transfer photo paper and much more into your projects.
A heat press is used to transfer a design from the transfer paper to an item. Heat presses can heat a transfer up to 218 degrees C and can press between 40 and 80 pounds per square inch which permanently adheres the image onto another surface. This is difficult to achieve with a home iron because they are not able to get as hot or apply an adequate amount of pressure which affects the finished item’s permanency.
If you would like to print your own T-Shirts, photographic blocks, design a vinyl heat transfer to use in another project then this workshop is ideal for you.
This class is subject to a minimum number of 3 and maximum of 5 people. Cost of this is dependent on what you would like to transfer.
