Workshop Dates: September 17-19, 2020
About This Workshop:
Come join as we learn to use plants, flowers, fruits, vegetables, wood and metal to make our marks on paper and fabrics. We will learn the process of dye baths, steaming and wrapping bundles; as well as learning some basic “chemistry” and share recipes to recreate the look of nature. After creating our glorious papers and fabric samples, we will be incorporating them into two different types of journals, using paints and mark making to embellish.
We will also be learning different types of covers and bindings to assemble our art papers.
These methods are wonderful learning tools to continue to create our art quilts.
The tactile and visual beauty of fabric has been a motivation to creativity. As a child, I was fascinated by the possibility of transforming a flat piece of cloth into a uniquely crafted article of clothing. After a journey of making dolls, garments and quilts, I am now driven to experiment with new techniques in dyeing, painting and embellishing fabric. I enjoy sharing my passion with others by teaching these techniques and broadening my own exploration in fabric art. My aspiration is to tell a story, engage the viewer in a dialogue and challenge them to a deeper emotional experience.
