Workshop March 17: Painting Dye on Silk- Bev Pedersen

Workshop March 17: Painting Dye on Silk- Bev Pedersen

Painting with Dye on Silk Workshop a Fun Success!   The eleven students in the dye painting workshop got a full dose of fun and information from Beverly Pedersen on March 17th.  If people weren’t wearing their St. Patrick’s green when they came into the room, there was enough of any bright color to cover them when they left. Beverly explained how to prepare the silk, mix the dyes and achieve different techniques, then let the class explore the color.  Students painted silk on freezer paper, silk stretched on frames, and used leftover dye to scrunch-dye fabric in plastic bags as part of cleanup.   Fun was had by all- just look at the smiles! Beverly, an artist from the pacific northwest, has been painting and teaching since she was a teen.  She has studied in art institutes in Pittsburgh, London, Paris and with artists in the San Francisco bay area and in...

Sue Foss- Nozome Fabric Painting June 2016

June 11th- Nozome Community Cloth Project The original concept was developed by Hiroshi Saito, a Japanese artist. His idea was for work to represent “feelings” and to give back through creating community dyed banners to ‘give hope’ to a community or a cause in need. Think about the about the motions that you make – is it squiggles, full of lines or splotches a pattern or just areas of color? In this workshop, we used a community dying effort to create a large piece of art cloth that was then divided up among the...
