Attention all textured textile fans! Love that wonderful texture of expensive shibori-dyed clothing and scarves? Here’s an exciting silk and cloth dyeing workshop that teaches you how to create permanent glorious texture in your work. In this full day hands-on class you will dye then take your dyed goods to the next level, creating 3 beautifully textured scarves (with pleats, bubbles and more), as well as your own samples, and learn a natural texturing method without expensive equipment or hours of steaming.
Here is a fun way to create a 3 dimensional shape out of wool: in this class students will be felting over an inflatable ball to make a vessel or a bowl. We will explore different ways to manipulate the surface before and after felting. Materials used: dyed, carded wool and silk fibers. Absolutely no knitting is involved and no previous felting experience is necessary. Expect a bit of physical work while making felt.
Materials will be supplied by the instructor at an additional cost of $15 per person. Please bring a plastic container, a bar of soap and 2 old towels to class.
This is a monitored, non-instructional workshop in which artists can work at their own pace in the medium of their selection (no turpentine-based oil paints, please) from a live model in short and sustained poses. Chairs and a limited number of easels are available. Students must provide their own materials. Come as often as you like throughout the year. REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED —just drop in and pay at the door ($12/$10 ACP members). View more information or register.
