Drawing on her love of cast-off materials, and incorporating stitching, Cheri will lead participants in exploration of a materials-based art-making process.

joomchi

An example of joomchi paper

Joomchi with Zia Gipson on Whidbey Island

Pacific NorthWest Art School
April 28–29, 2018

9 a.m.–4 p.m.
$330This is an introductory to advanced course taught by SDA-WA member Zia Gipson in the ancient Korean technique of joomchi or felted paper. In this context the word ‘felted’ means that this method of fusing papers uses some of the same hand tools and styles of manipulation that one can use in making felt from wool fiber. In both cases, the main tools are the hands and water. Having studied papermaking for several years and traveled extensively in Asia I will also talk about the uses of paper in traditional rural societies in Korea and Japan.

The full two days will include a history of hand paper making using long fiber papers especially mulberry fiber as it is still practiced around the world. We’ll build collages without glue or other usual methods of adhesion, relying instead on the natural process of papermaking. Once we’ve worked our paper by rolling and by hand we can shape the papers into a three-dimensional form or cast the assembled layers into strong, stiff shapes. We’ll explore the options for final texture from a soft, fabric like finished product to a stiff, highly crumpled sheet. Color in your composition will come via the dyes in the long fiber papers you use or in surface design at any stage of the process… as always color and pattern can be an important or subtle element in your composition. What you will do with the finished felted paper is up to you… shape into jewelry or a vessel and prepare for hanging on the wall. Register here.

On the second day you’ll felt a seamless bag with a woven design. Register here.
Troubleshooting in Wet Felt-Making: Advanced Felt-Saving Techniques
September 12, 2018
$170.00
When to use bubble wrap, when to use a rug liner, when to use a drop-cloth or a sheet in felt making? Have you ever felted a piece and you thought it wasn’t successful? Did the silk not stick to the wool? Did you cut the wrong side of the slippers? Are the edges of the felt ruffly and uneven? Did the embellishments separate from the felt? Did the design not turn out the way it was planned? Have you ever started a project but did not really have the time to finish up?In this workshop, Flóra gathered a variety of felt-saving techniques, that are usually the highlights of different workshops. Several tools and techniques will be introduced for troubleshooting accidents of all kinds, that might happen during felt making. Bring your unfinished/unsuccessful piece(s) to the class. We’ll group the items with similarities and discuss all the possibilities to save the piece(s) and give it/them a new life. After the group discussion everyone get’s to work on their own, with more one-on-one counseling. We’ll take photos of the projects at the beginning and at the end of the class. Register here.

2016_01MasonLearn the key to a world of color on fabric!

My upcoming workshop, Dyeing for Quilters (and other people who love fabric), is just two weeks away. In this workshop you will learn all the basics for using fiber reactive dyes (Procion MX). These dyes are inexpensive and versatile and are the most light-fast, color-fast, and safe dyes available on the market.

We will start with basic dye chemistry and color theory for dyers and then use that knowledge as a base for exploration. We will focus on using cotton but you can also bring silk or any cellulose fiber fabric for your own exploration. Dyeing for Quilters (and other people who love fabric), Saturday, January 30 and Sunday, January 31, 10am-4pm. Optional Open Studio Day, Monday, February 1, 10am-4pm. Get more information and sign up for this and other upcoming workshops on the Workshops page of my website, cameronannemason.com.

Barbara Houshmand, Three x Three

Barbara Houshmand’s piece Three x Three was accepted into “Fantastic Fibers” Fiber art show in Paducah, Kentucky.  Barbara says, “This quilt is made of my hand dyed antique kimono silks, hand dyed vintage Italian silks and hand dyed cottons.  I was inspired to make this quilt to maximize texture, color and character of each bit of cloth I used. The three bowls and three circles tend to bring order to a somewhat chaotic background.”
