Irresistible Surface Design for Fiber Artists

November 10 - 13, 2012

All Levels

In this hands-on 3-day workshop explore a wide variety of resist- and printmaking techniques to use on fabric. The emphasis is on the use of non-toxic, water-based materials that yield stunning results. Clear and metallic resists will be covered, as well as several natural starch resists. Printmaking techniques include collagraphs, block printing, thermofax printing and nature printing with fish, leaves and produce. Create individual motifs to use as central figures in future art quilts and create all-over designs on yardage as well. This class is a great introduction to those looking to explore surface design for the first time, yet also offers a lot to more advanced students.

Materials fee: $35 for paints, resists and printmaking materials
