Adding and Subtracting Layers on Textiles
Pratt Fine Arts Center Friday-Sunday, 10am-6pm, 9/30-10/2/2011
Working with MX dyes and discharge, the removal of color, we will alternate layers to create complexity and depth of color on fabric. Shibori binding, organic pastes, and physical resist techniques will be used, each method creating its own characteristic marks. Techniques covered are easily grasped yet endlessly variable. Use of discharge agents including bleach, thiourea dioxide, and other products will be covered while emphasizing safe studio practices. This workshop emphasizes process and experimentation, learning to control technique while celebrating the happy accident. Prerequisite: None
