SILKWORKS: Textile Collage at Mulberry Silks & Fine Fabrics
February 23 - 25, 2018
Explore ways to blend color, line and gesture with a variety of fabrics and find your way to making a beautiful contemporary textile. We will begin by dyeing silk organza and thread for hand stitching. We will combine hand-dyed silks with linens and cottons. We will invent new colors by layering lengths of translucent silk organza via collage creating an expressive abstract landscape of cloth. Incorporate vintage fabrics. Through the repetition of simple geometric forms you will develop an expressive abstract landscape. Investigate and explore the surface with machine and hand stitching.

WRAP Workshop at the
Pacific NorthWest Art School
October 5-8, 2018 (9AM-4PM)
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.
