Three Day Workshop with Jane Dunnewold (SAQA Florida Region)

SAQA (Regional)

The Complexities of Layered Printing on Cloth

In this three-day workshop, participants will develop strategies for printing layers of imagery on cloth. We will analyze size, shape, complexity, and color. Participants will work on fabrics dyed prior to the workshop, or on plain-colored fabric purchased commercially. We will be working with translucent, opaque, and metallic textile paint, and will discuss the use of clear extender to create paints that are sheer layers, as well as experimenting with faux resist, which is my answer to avoiding the toxic chemicals of the discharging process.

Each participant will produce between 3 and six lengths of cloth.
