Leah Parkhurst

Join us for a fun and experimental workshop exploring surface design techniques! Learn four distinct surface design techniques to transform a range of fiber-based surfaces into unique works of art. Learn how to use paints, inks, dyes, and other embellishments to add custom images, prints, and shapes to fabric. Explore relief printing, and see how to create crisp custom patterns. Try your hand at screen-printing, stenciling, and collagraph techniques to add dimension to your existing designs. Explore a range of mark making options and see where your creativity leads you! Beginners welcome. Materials fee $15, payable to the instructor at the time of class.
