Blueprint –Tradition versus Modernity

Blueprint as a traditional pattern or textile design? Blueprint is an old textile technique of creating patterns, ornaments and painting fabric by indigo. It is a special kind of dying that is similar to the technique of batique. This technology can create wonderful vintage patterns or contemporary fabric prints. The School of Applied Arts from Bratislava will introduce to you traditional and contemporary blueprint techniques.
