• Instructor: Jen Omaitz Saturday, May 1st 10am-4:00pm Learn the magical art of marbling on fabric with this one day intensive workshop. We will explore pattern, color and design through marbling. Marbling consist of suspending inks on on thickened water (carrageenan). The inks are then manipulated through a series of swirls, rakes and other techniques to transform them into given design. Each student will have the opportunity to experiment on paper and silk and will finish the workshop with a silk marbled scarf.
  • Instructor: Sandy Shelenberger Saturday, May 8, 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.
