From vintage linens to silks our programs can include history, techniques, tool use and a better understanding of the fiber arts
world through experiencing fabric or yarn dyeing. Weaving projects can be included. Specialty techniques from Natural Dyes, Rust, Shibori methods to Batik and Katozome.
Special thanks to West Elm Charlotte for the first image of one of our Shibori Indigo dyed fabrics included with their furnishings.
The second image is from a Visiting Artist Residency at the Saint Andrews School in Boca Raton, FL called "Come Together" created with students while they learned about the Yamato Colony of Japanese Farmers who settled in the
Boca Raton area in the early 20th century. The Art and Agriculture Project provided a foundation for intersections with food, family, farming and the arts.
Keep the art of letter writing alive with a fun event creating paper works of art, stationary, calling cards, envelope liners, menus, handmade paper or even handmade books. Groups who want to learn how to dye with papers, dip dye, create ombre striations, learn how to marble paper and create beautiful free hand designs tend to love this workshop. A super workshop for creating paper products with a personal touch. Learn some hand lettering techniques along with exploring different tools for drawing and the written word.
Our experience with printmaking
allows us to provide opportunities to learn how to create lino cut prints, screen print and mono print with gelatin and plates with or without a printing press on fabric or paper. Explore the magic of cyanotype. Leave our workshop with the knowledge and confidence to explore designs and create prints at home or work.
Designing a lecture/presentation program or workshop for your group is our specialty.
