This past weekend I facilitated the first Surface Design Workshop at Studio Mariposa.* This first level is essentially an introduction to using thickened fiber-reactive dyes on cloth. I kept the palette very simple but the results were just amazing! It was a really inspiring weekend for all of us. What follows are photographs of the work at different stages. They are fairly chronological, i.e., the stages leading up to and including removal of the work from the table for setting are first, followed by the presentation (and discussion). The last images are of my demo pieces, both discharge and positive prints. Click on any image to launch the larger format viewer.
*SD 1 & 2 go together. The work will continue in the next level workshop scheduled for mid-August. I will be scheduling a new round in the Fall. If you’re interested, please contact me so I can keep you apprised of the dates.
