At the Sturt Summer School this year I taught a "Colour+Print" workshop that focused on the basics of mixing colour for printing onto textiles.
|One happy class!|
|Kate's green hydrangea block-print|
|Elizabeth's vibrant block-printed cotton|
|Exploring both traditional and hand carved blocks|
|This was a fabulous collaboration with a professional outcome!|
Oh....they also presented me with this fab tote bag, screen-printed and signed by each one of them, then sewn up in the dead of night by Lee...and filled with bottles of wine of course! One of the most enjoyable workshops I have taught.
My next workshop will be at the TAFTA Geelong Fibre Forum in late September - Experiments in Printing with Mordants. Great for those of you who have an interest in natural dyeing and want to expand into printing with mordants and natural dyes.
