Spend a weekend filled with surface design exploration! Begin with creating colorful textured backgrounds, explore mark making with different kinds of stamps, draw with inks using quill type calligraphy and ruling pens.
Paint imagery opaquely and with a transparent watercolor look. Layer washes of color with simple imagery by creating masks with freezer paper and create textured patterning with simple resists from common items found in the office supply store.
Each portion of the class will add another level of complexity to the image making process, with the last day culminating in a 1/2 yard painted whole cloth piece incorporating many of the techniques learned over the previous two days.
This weekend is packed with tips and ideas of different ways to work with these versatile inks on fabric.
The workshop, meals and accommodations will be at Karey Bresenhan’s beautiful Great Expectations Creativity Center just outside La Grange.
