Fusion Art Cloth: Eco-dyeing, Shibori and Screen print with Anne Leon
This workshop is the ultimate fusion of plant-dyeing, Shibori and screen-printing techniques, incorporating photo- emulsion processes to create unique and multi-layers Art Cloths.
Students will learn shibori techniques to dye fabrics using locally sourced materials, creating intricate patterns and backgrounds. Then, using local natural surrounds as our inspiration, we will draw and refine images which will become the basis for the prints: transferring images onto screens using photo emulsion, and printing them onto the pre-dyed cloth. The rich layering of dye, print and textures enables a depth of artistry.
In addition, maintaining a creative diary and record of experimental, dyeing, Shibori and drawing will provide a valuable reference for ongoing projects. This workshop is suitable of all levels of experience.
