Cameron Anne Mason to teach workshop October 15 & 16


Creating Artcloth Using Resists

Saturday & Sunday, October 15 & 16 (2 sessions), 10am – 4pm

Working with fiber reactive dyes, we will layer resists to create complexity and depth of color on fabric. Shibori binding, organic pastes, and soy wax will be used, each method creating its own characteristic marks. Students will receive handouts covering dye chemistry and safe studio practices. Techniques are easily grasped yet endlessly variable. This workshop emphasizes process and experimentation, learning to control technique while celebrating the happy accident. 

Cameron Anne Mason creates artwork that delves deeply into surface design technique, and brings that depth to her sculptural work. Inspired by nature and the touch of human hands upon it, Cameron’s art is a response to the world around through surface, form, and stitch. Cameron gets great satisfaction from sharing her knowledge with students young and old. She shares her extensive research, studio technique, and a sense for exploration and experimentation with students. Cameron Anne Mason is represented by Foster/White Gallery and has shown widely with the Contemporary Quilt Art Association. Cameron was awarded the Audience Choice Award at the Rio Patchwork Design Show in Rio de Janeiro in 2010. Cameron is a member of Northwest Designer Craftsman, Surface Design Association, and the Contemporary Quilt Art Association.

I took this workshop – it was awesome. I learned so much. Plus you get a chance to play with techniques and see what you like and what you don’t like. Great fun.  –TSP
