I K A T T E N CATALÀ CASTELLANO ARTIST, ARTISAN, TEXTILE DESIGNER I grew up in an environment that shaped my artistic vocation. Having gone through a training process, which part of graphic design, illustration and design patterns, finally I specialized in technical textile printing processes. A major turning point in my learning was when I started working in the studio Rafa Teja, artist, poet and designer. That’s where I discovered and fell in love with painting on silk in its artistic expression. All this background and my capacity for renewal and experimentation, particularly in the application of paint on silk, has led me to work with different studios and companies related to the sector. Once independent,I decided to take on the ever exciting adventure of teaching through the creation of workshops in painting, dyeing and textile printing in my studio Ikatten in Barcelona.Courses of technical textiles; shibori, batik, silk painting and screen printing and development assistance workshops end fashion student projects.
