Begin your week of experimentation by creating a collection of patterned and layered fabrics and papers. Surface Design techniques including Batik, Shibori, printing, stamping, application of dyes and discharge techniques will all be covered!
We will also incorporate photographic imagery through photo transfer on fabric and paper utilizing an ink jet printer. Combine your works through a variety of collage techniques, with other found papers, recycled materials and fabrics for artwork full of interest and depth!
The week will be filled with lots of experimentation, creativity and demonstrations. Some demonstrations will include a unique process for stiffening fabric, as well as folding saturated transparent papers and fabrics that have been immersed in a stiffening agent to create beautiful individual “Design Packages” that can be combined in a variety of innovative ways.
