image repetition project from surface design class

My grad students have just finished another project, this one about repeat images, and various ways of printing on fabric. We discuss block printing, screenprinting, stenciling, heat-transfer, and digital textile printing. Here are some selected images of the project they have just completed on this topic!

Second-year grad student Cami Huebert laser-cut these alphabet stamps to create a set of monogrammed tea towels as a gift for her sister.

 Three heat-transfer projects from top right: second-year Jane Reichard made logo tee-shirts for the Graduate and Professional Student Federation, first-year Ellen Cornette made logo tee-shirts for the business she co-owns with her husband, and first-year Erin Rodgers made a buillon lace trim transfer embellishing the hem of a skirt.

 Duke undergraduate Reilly Johnson hand-carved this rubber hexagon stamp which may be used to create an allover pattern on yardage.

Reilly also created a "3D" screenprint of the Star Trek Enterprise. She used three colors of ink and slightly deviated the registration to evoke the aesthetic of images for viewing with 3D glasses.
