Workshop begins on May 22, 2023 and runs for 8 weeks.
This groundbreaking workshop will lead students through a number of projects on silk, cotton, linen, wool, and paper. Through contact printing, immersion baths, bundling and binding techniques, and the magic of indigo, this workshop will explore new, uncharted territory on textiles.
In this workshop students will rust print with flat metal and learn bundling techniques to work with sculptural pieces. The class will make two tannin baths to selectively shift colour while working with binding resist. Additional immersion techniques will be taught with ferrous, tannin, and calcium. A special rust-tea bath will be used to give dramatic results on cloth. Finally students will explore the magic of an iron-reduced indigo vat. This is a very creative exploration of the transformative power of materials to create novel marks and patterns.
