A new companion workshop and further exploration of the natural process of coaxing plants to print utilizing background colors on paper and silk. You will be provided with 2 silk scarves and 4 pieces of paper. Beginners welcome.
Student prerequisites: Good hand strength.
Materials list: Students can bring their own scoured or pre-mordanted material. (Contact instructor for scouring and mordanting instructions.)
My career as a professional art director and wine label graphic designer translated easily into the fine arts, searching for hidden colors, abstract forms from nature, and developing textures from plants onto fabrics, paper and ceramics.
For the last 10 years, I have been teaching workshops in the newest techniques in botanical printing and modern Shibori in Sonoma, with workshops in 2020 at the Gualala Art Center. These workshops are for the beginner as well as providing inspiration to the advanced fiber artists.
