Black, White & Infinity: Sumi Ink, Silk and Felt -  Slow Fiber Studios Annex   •   Berkeley, California, USA
July 28, 2017 - July 30, 2017

In this three-day workshop, create three-dimensional embellishments through traditional feltmaking. Learn how to employ clamp compression on silk with sericin erasure and apply carbon sumi ink to fabric. Each day focuses on building layers of design elements (color, texture, line) to create a small felted scarf or sample work for framing.

Jorie Johnson was introduced to traditional textile technique in Finland in 1977 and was immediately enchanted by the magic and power of felting. Since 1987, she has lived in Kyoto, Japan, where she established her textile studio, Joi Rae. Jorie exhibits her contemporary feltworks in galleries, shops, and museums, and teaches workshops around the world.
