Current & Upcoming workshops
Mulberry Silks & Fine Fabrics
June 8, 9, 10, 2018
Love children’s art? Explore playful possibilities of illustrating with cloth. We will blend & bend color with line into whimsical textile collages. Surface design activities include dyeing, layering, drawing and stitching. Day One begins with a dye workshop at Peg’s Carrboro studio in which participants will create a vivid array of hand dyed silk organza. Day Two and Three will focus on composition, line and color. We will mince up random scraps of cotton and linen to build expressive surfaces and transform those surfaces with overlays of translucent silks. Incorporate vintage fabrics, bring your favorite kid drawings! Come draw with abandon on your sewing machine and create an expressive picturescape!

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.
