Hilary Peterson - Dye print layer stitch

Using plant dyeing, and simple printing techniques, such as lino/ easy carve blocks, mono printing and stencilling, with fabric and paper you'll create small works that may be assembled in a variety of ways such as books, scrolls etc or small stand alone, individual artworks.  

Working from your own references to develop a personal style, you'll learn how to exploit the different techniques to best effect in combination with fabric, paper and stitching. Simple shibori techniques will be investigated. 

We will work with a variety of fabrics such as sheer and heavier weight to create depth and mystery in your work and create texture and contrast with hand stitching.  As well as demonstrations, individual assistance will be provided throughout the workshop to cater for beginners as well as more advanced students.  

Students will be guided to bring into being work that encompasses their personal vision.  In addition to finished pieces students will be encouraged to create a sampler book of dyed and printed fabrics and papers as a permanent record of processes. This will become a valuable resource for future reference.
