Having a valuable supply of interesting fabrics at your fingertips is the key to designing fresh and exciting work. This workshop will cover skills not commonly taught in natural dye classes, but essential to creating intricate layers of design that carry your personal signature. Employ clamp-resist on silk with sericin erasure to produce pattern repeats, learn how to apply carbon sumi ink to fabric, and create three-dimensional colorful embellishments through traditional feltmaking. Each day focuses on building layers of design elements (color, texture, line) to create a small felted scarf or sample work for framing.
