Transform acres of silk into 100 hand-dyed art scarves. Add in original poetry and pattern. Print, cut, stitch and release! These wraps will be given to women living with and surviving cancer in diverse communities. Together we will consider the scarf as canvas; as talisman, as dialogue. Explore words and graphics funneled through basic dye, print and piecing techniques. Discover how pop up studio practices allows the artist to work in unconventional spaces, reaching hidden communities.

Mulberry Silks & Fine Fabrics
October 19, 20, 21, 2018
Interested in printing your own cloth? This workshop begins with students transforming simple drawings into thermofax screens. Come explore the fun of making your own design and printing with textile inks in Gignoux’s studio (Day One). Students will have an opportunity to make their own yardage while also contributing to community cloth of combined marks. Day Two and Three will focus on composition, color and line in the building of distinctive textile collages. We will layer, slice and stitch. And artfully combine hand printed cloth with other fabrics in your stash. Each student will go home with their own screen for future printing opportunities.
