  • Instructor: Eleanor Anderson Saturday, August 29, 10am-4pm In this one day workshop, students will dye silk scarves (materials provided). While our cloth dyes in the vat, we will design and create linoleum blocks using carving tools and then use them to print on our scarves and bandannas. This class will explore repeat pattern strategies as well as color relationships on fabric.
  • Instructor: Jen Omaitz Saturday, August 8th 10am-4:00pm Learn the magical art of marbling on fabric with this one day intensive workshop. We will explore pattern and design through marbling on silk scarfs. We will also explore color and marbling techniques through both traditional (Ebru) and non traditional approaches. Marbling consist of suspending inks on on thickened water (carrageenan). Inks are put though a series of swirls, rakes and other techniques to transform a given design. The outcome then becomes printed, similar to monoprinting, on a surface of choice.  
  • Instructor: Sandy Shelenberger Saturday, July 25, 10 – 4pm Explore using soy wax as a resist on fabric to create a sophisticated look of multi-dimensional layering in easy to do steps. We will work with fabric paints and/or dyes for our color palette and discuss the layering of colors. We will make or use found objects for stamping into the fabric using the soy wax. Demonstrations of wax removal techniques and all materials are provided.
  • Instructor: Gregory Hatch Saturday, July 18, 10am-4pm Laminated felting (Nuno)  bonds loose fiber, usually wool, into a sheer fabric such as silk, creating a lightweight felt. The fibers can completely cover the background fabric, or they may be used as a decorative design that allows the backing fabric to show. Nuno felting often incorporates several layers of loose fibers combined to build up color, texture, and/or design elements in the finished fabric. This technique is particularly suited to making fabrics for clothing. Explore the many possibilities during this one day workshop!
  • Instructor: Jasmine Kornel Saturday July 11, 10am-4pm This workshop will focus on exploring the array of color that can be achieved using historically cultivated natural dyes on a variety of fabrics. Many of the dyes will be from the Praxis natural dye garden. Students will get the opportunity to use  multiple immersion baths for layered and complex results. The basics of extraction and storage of dyes will be covered as well as some simple resist techniques to enhance color variations. All materials are included. Students are welcome to bring additional potential dye material for experimentation.  
  • Instructor: Annmarie Suglio Saturday, June 20, 10am - 4pm This is the perfect workshop for someone who wants to begin weaving without the added time of learning to set up the loom. All looms will be ready to weave on for this one day workshop, a process which would normally take an entire additional day. Bring your own fabrics to cut into strips and weave into your own rag rug. Experiment with color, pattern and texture to achieve stunning results on the first try! All participants will leave at the end of the day with your own 2' x 3' rug.
  • Instructor: Sandy Shelenberger Saturday, June 10, 10am - 4pm Experimental Screen Printing is a combination of traditional screen printing, painting and fabric surface design. This is a great opportunity to learn about the techniques of screen printing on fabric, without the added expense of photo emulsion and a dark room. This process is great for home dyers without the equipment for a full screen printing practice. Manipulate your imagery with stencils and resists directly on the screen. Experiment with layering and mixing thickened dye. This process is full of the unknown! Experienced artists and beginners will both walk away with new knowledge and lots of results.
