  • In this workshop you will create any artistic scene, object, abstract, or idea you have on your screen and transfer it to fiber.

    Many thanks to Susie Monday from the Hill Country in Texas for developing this technique and sharing it with the Fiber Art world. She extended on a technique originally developed by Joy Stocksdale called Polychromatic Screen Printing. Kerr Grabowski took it one step further with deconstructed screen printing with thickened dyes and experimented with pulling other media through the screen. Susie experimented with water soluble media such as Inktense pencils and blocks, charcoal, watercolor pencils and crayons. This technique opened the fiber world to greater artistic expression.

Rainbow Printing with Linda Dawson

Workshop Fee: $60 (includes Beach Art Center Fee)

Many thanks to Susie Monday from the Hill Country in Texas for developing this technique and sharing it with the Fiber Art world.

In this workshop you will create any artistic scene, object, abstract or idea you have on your screen and transfer it to fiber. I suggest something that can be completed in our workshop time. Details can be added once the item has dried and before it is heat set. Below are two examples of items that were completed within the time frame, and some additional examples of what can be done.


(Supply list below pictures)


What You Will Need:

 

1. Substrata to print on:

a. Watercolor or mixed media paper

i. Watercolor crayons 

j. Aqua markers 

k. Any water-soluble media 

l. Nothing with acrylic like paints - If in doubt email me at: fiberart2@verizon.net or bring to workshop and I will test it for you, so you do not ruin your screen or project. 


3. Tools:

a. One or two small silk screens 

b. Matte or Gloss media 

c. Squeegee 

d. Pan such as cat sand container to hold water and put screens in so acrylic media will not dry in them and ruin them.

g. Scissors 

h. Commercial stencils 

i. Texture to rub. 

j.Paper towels are required.


The list of media is long, and you do not need to bring every thing on it. Perhaps we can share media. I work on fabric and paper and love to create with paper.
