Date of Workshop: January 21, 2024
Time of Workshop: 10am-4pm
Location: Beach Art Center, 1515 Bay Palm Blvd, Indian Rocks Beach, FL
Workshop Description: A fast-paced day of inventing marks, sharing marks, and creating stamped, stenciled, and appropriated marks! Each participant will get to use all the tools collectively, while we share ideas and then test run additional printed elements. I envision these “pages” being turned into a book of samples, which could include stitching by members of the group in a later session (or series of sessions!). Instructions will be given for the covers at class.
Contact information if you have any questions: email@example.com
Materials Instructor Brings: Odd and Ends.
Student Supply List:
6-8 of your favorite mark making tools that you like to print with or would like to try out.
2 yards of white Thermofoam (Find online or at JoAnn Fabrics)
NOTE: This is a smooth, dense fabric that won’t fray and is usually used to block heat and light behind curtains. We will be making “pages” and I will show you how to turn your mark making experiments into a delightful sample book that can include additional collaging or stitch.
How to Prepare Your Fabric Pages:
Cut your pages in advance to save class time! The entire two yards can be cut into equal sized pieces. I recommend cutting panels that are 8” x 24.”
You may have some left over fabric and you can save it for later printing use.
DO NOT PREWASH THE FABRIC.
