Experimental Dyeing and Mark Making
October 20 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm PDT
Repurpose accessible tools and materials to experiment with mark making, dyeing, and creating bold and fun canvas cloths.
In this virtual workshop we will use accessible, repurposed tools and materials to explore experimental mark making techniques to create bold and fun canvas cloths. Rocks and leaves become stencils. Avocado pits become dye. Vegetables, sponges, and scraps of all kinds become stamps to be used on any found surface or used textile. The drop cloths used during the workshop become the textile for the next making experience! These textiles can be turned into one-of-a-kind handmade objects such as bags, pillows, or more. Participants will learn easy and low-tech surface design techniques that can be replicated at home at little to no cost, and be a fun and easy activity to share with family and your COVID isolation group.
