Alternative Surface Design Techniques

November 1, 2020 – November 7, 2020

JoEl Levy LoGiudice

During this workshop students will explore surface design techniques for mark making and repeat pattern making. Through classroom demonstrations and creative work sessions, participants delve into the fundamentals of dye discharge, bleach discharge, ice dyeing and rust dyeing. Designs will emerge as you learn to master each process employing a variety of techniques including shibori (folding, pole wrapping, clamp resist) and stenciling. Students will also explore stamping to remove and add color to raw silk and cotton fabric. At the end of class, participants will have samples and yardage to use in clothing, art quilts or fabric collages. Open to all skill levels.
