with Silk Screens, Soy Wax Resist & Fabric Manipulation
Create beautiful surfaces for your quilt projects!
Fiber artist Ginny Eckley will take you on a surface design adventure using screen printing, soy wax resist, dye, fabric manipulation, and more. Join Ginny and learn to create pleasing artwork that combines a mix of imagery with a balance of abstraction. After an overview of the Workshop and a discussion of design, you'll learn how to create precise images using silk screens. Next, get a variety of methods for using soy wax to soften the imagery and add interest to backgrounds. Soy application techniques covered in this Workshop include using a string-wrapped brayer, wooden blocks, and chip brushes.
Plus, you'll discover how to set off your designs by adding a tranquil mix of pleated patterns, reminiscent of shibori. The pleated patterns provide interest and, like the calming waves of the ocean, they offer a comforting sense of harmony. Learning new techniques is wonderful—and combining new techniques to create art is even better! This is one adventure you won't want to miss.
