Workshop Overview

This is an environmentally friendly workshop where students wil recycle paper and create art. First, students will learn how to make *washable* paper-cloth with recycled newspapers. This is the instructor’s original technique to obtain a seamless integration of paper on cloth that then can be ironed, painted and sewn by hand or by machine. Students will also learn how to create their own ECO friendly fabric paint. Students will work with resist, repetition, and add colored backgrounds, and will then learn how to prepare magazine clippings to easily applique by hand onto the cloth. Toward the end of the workshop, students will design a small collage with the created paper-cloths and sew accented details by hand. This workshop is for intermediate students with prior knowledge of surface design.
