Dye/Felt Combo Session 2

- $145

Have you seen those fabulous felted silk scarves in boutiques? Felting authority Piroska Toth and Master Dyer Lian Sawires have paired up to create a special 2-session workshop just for you. Learn about silk dyeing, patterning, color and visual texture while using shibori techniques to create and dye two beautiful large scarves. Then in week #2 you will felt one of your silks into a gorgeous creation. Participants will use the softest merino wool, additional silk fibers and soapy water to roll all this into a one-of-a-kind “nuno” scarf. Instruction will be given as to how to manipulate color and texture, techniques for shaping and final finishing touches. No previous experience is necessary but expect a bit of physical work while making felt. All materials included.

- $115

Come and discover the power of your camera and learn the elements of good artistic composition during a photo shoot at Princeton University Graduate College on Day 1 of this weekend workshop.  Day 2 will be spent in ACP’s Digital Studio gaining a better understanding of how to work with software, moving from the newly formed images on the monitor to the realization of a print ready digital image file.
 
DAY 1: Saturday, October 25 at 1-4pm at PU Graduate College
[88 College Road West in Princeton]
Participants will have ample time to explore the grounds to capture images, talk about photography and answer individual questions. Instruction will be given in the basic elements of good photographic composition, including leading lines, pattern, symmetry, rule of thirds, texture, and framing. Along the way students will be guided through shooting manually using ISO’s, Shutter Speeds, f-Stops, and Depth of Field, among other topics. The intent of the workshop is for participants to have fun, while becoming more comfortable with the operation of their cameras and their abilities to express themselves through it.  Please dress appropriately for the weather and comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Rain or shine!

DAY 2: Sunday, October 26 at 10am-1pm at the Arts Council of Princeton
[102 Witherspoon Street in Princeton]
The intent of this follow-up session is to give the student a methodology for working effectively with the software side of digital photography, moving from the newly formed images on the monitor to the realization of a print ready digital image file. While working in ACP’s Digital Imaging Lab, Bill will guide students through the basics of digital image “Work Flow”, starting with Lightroom’s Library module to organizing images, entering Meta Data, Key Words, copyright information, as well as renaming of image files. Image correcting will occur in Lightroom’s Develop module, covering, Color Space settings, Color Management, and the basics of good “Non-Destructive Image Construction”.

Botanical Paper

- $165

Learn how to create Japanese and Western style handmade paper using nature’s elements. This intensive two day workshop will be different than Kathy’s previous classes because it will be more about actually making paper from the raw fiber. Garden botanicals such as Kozo and mulberry imported from Japan, and daylily leaves, marigold blossoms, and bamboo will be used as the “pulp” for the paper. Plant fibers dry into translucent but strong tactile paper. Flower petals and leaves become embedded within it. This class will cover various pulp creating techniques beginning with the natural plant and finishing with dried paper. Students should bring pressed dried flowers and leaves and should wear comfortable shoes.
A materials fee of $20.00 will be paid directly to the instructor.
