Singing The Blues: The Joys of Working with Indigo3-Day Workshop with John Marshall
Sept. 23-25, 2016
IN THIS COURSE we will be exploring many of the traditional Japanese ways of working with indigo, including rice-paste resist, clamp resist and string resist. We will be using indigo as a vat dye and as a dye painted directly on our natural fibers. So much to explore—so many nuances!
FIVE-DAY WORKSHOP with JOHN MARSHALL
MON-FRI, SEPT. 26-30, 2016
This lively and compact course is designed as an intensive introduction to the traditional art of katazome—Japanese paste-resist dyeing with stencils. An abundance of antique and contemporary samples will be presented to help participants understand the history and development of this versatile process. In addition, participants will be guided through the entire process of dyeing silk in the ancient Japanese traditions.
The course includes making our own natural dyes, our own resist from rice and bran, carving stencils from hand made mulberry paper, and much, much more. Each participant will be able to leave with a completed length of silk suitable for clothing, quilts, or wall hangings.

- This spring we're honored to bring Elizabeth Buckley to our shop for a workshop entitled:
Exploring the Visual Heartbeat:
Use of Rhythm in Tapestry Design
Rhythm is not only integral to the world of music and dance, but also to effective tapestry design. In this workshop, we explore different approaches to visual rhythm through the use of: repetition, progressions, gradations, and contrast in shape, line, value and color. These underlying principles behind rhythm will help you go beyond the flat background to creating a sense of movement and dynamic flow.
