The Traveled Landscape: Connecting Art, Nature and Surface Design
July 21, 2019 – July 27, 2019
Utilizing the surrounding environment, students in this workshop will discover observed and collected forms to develop designs connected to a vernacular “place.” Found patterns and textures will inspire you to create abstract and nature-based designs on cotton, linen, and/or silk including repurposed and vintage fabric. Participants will explore various surface-design techniques that include eco-dyeing, takbon printing, heliographic sun-prints, relief-stamping and mono-printing with reactive dyes to embellish their fabric collages. The class includes guidance and informal critiques to help students complete several pieces. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
