Surface Design on Fabric
In this two day course, we will explore two different styles of surface design on fabric. On the first day, we will use earth pigments and natural plant dye extracts to paint paste resist designs on fabrics. You will paint directly on natural fibers that have been pre-treated with soy milk. In some cultures, brush painting on fabric has been an art form for centuries. On day two we will learn to carve simple Scandinavian-inspired designs on linoleum blocks and use permanent fabric inks to print the design onto fabric.
