Description:

Fabric Painting:  Screen Printing, Batik Painting, Shibori (Japanese fabric dying) with Cindy Persson, Lisa Silveira and Lynn Weglarz

Saturdays, October 18-November 15, 2-5 pm, $219 + supplies

Open the door to three creative ways to print your own fabric designs.  Beautiful, quick and easy, you can do each of them in just one or two sessions.

Screen Printing with Cindy Persson of StudioSKB, October 18 & 25

In two quick sessions, learn the basic steps to design and hand screen patterns onto fabric.  Use one of two methods with screen filler to put your image onto a silkscreen you will be able to use again and again.  Measure and print the patterns onto fabrics of your choice using fabric pigment.  Use these skills to create fabric, add details and make art on your garments with minimal equipment.

Batik Painting with Lisa Silveira of Wandering Muse, November 1 & 8

BatikPainting

Batik painting with wax resist lets you create beautiful, delicate designs.

Create a beautiful silk scarf through traditional methods of batik.  This is painting, not tub dying.  Your results will be much more delicate and controlled.  Learn about the required tools as well as techniques to apply wax as a resist and different methods for adding color.

Shibori3

Try a number of Shibori techniques then design your own fabric.

Shibori (Japanese painting) with Lynn Weglarz, November 15

There are so many beautiful patterns you can create using Shibori dyeing techniques. It's pretty incredible just how much you can change the look of a fabric by simply folding, twisting, and binding. We’ll try out some folding/clamping, handstitching, and wrapping/twisting around PVC pipe. You'll walk away with samples of different techniques.  Use these to create yardage for your own garments.
