Join me for a workshop this July at the Appalachian Center for Craft in Smithville, TN. The workshop is Dye It, Resist It, Rust It!

Explore textiles and surface design in this exciting and dynamic experimental class. Students will learn how to add pattern
to cloth with resists, rust effects, textile paints and dye. Investigate many surface design avenues including: imagery transfer methods, hand created stamps and stencils, sun prints, and found objects used to alter the textile surface. Textiles created in this class can be used in a multitude of ways including art cloth, art quilts, fashion, sewing and book projects.

The facility is truly a beautiful retreat setting. I got to visit this last fall and take a tour of the studios and facilities. Just amazing!


We will have an incredible and messy week!
