Fabric Paint Intensive at The Watershed

All Levels

A few more spots available. Please email education@artscouncilofprinceton.org to inquire. We´ve done indigo dyeing, batik, acid dyes and fiber reactives, now let´s dive into the surprising and diverse world of fabric paints. Come explore a half dozen artistic fabric paint techniques with Master Artisan Lian Sawires in this one day workshop. Color washes, heliographing, salt techniques, scrunching, spider veins, stamping and stencils. You will use these techniques again and again on scarves, yardage, quilting fabrics and clothing, creating unique designs every time. And they work on all kinds of fabric--cottons, silk and all blends. Some techniques create texture, but many simply create beautiful patterns with a soft, dyed-feel hand. Everything is provided, including 6 cotton squares, 2 scarves, color theory, handout and more. This is a wonderful collection of techniques to add to your surface design toolbox and combine with other textile work. 35.00 material fee to instructor Registration is exclusively through Arts Council of Princeton. Please call (609)924-8777 or visit classes at artscouncilofprinceton.org For more information about The Watershed Institute visit http://thewatershed.org/ Membership rate applies to current members of either organization.
