JaponIsMe
I was thrilled to discover a wonderful book in the Honolulu Art Museum, Le Japon Artistique, Japanese Floral Pattern Design in the Art Nouveau Era
It is amazing to see the bold background shapes and colors used with the delicate, graceful imagery of Art Nouveau.
Using this as a starting point, I created silkscreen designs to be used on painted backgrounds with bold angular shapes. This class will be taught in San Antonio, Texas in late May, 2019.



Scarves, Banners & Table Runners!
We'll be combining Dyes and paints, on lovely silk fabrics. Silk takes color so beautifully, with rich colors and a soft lustre. Just touching silk charmuese is luscious!

We'll dye the silks, then add imagery and paint, making depth and layers, that will have admirers wondering "How did you make that?" Totally fun with lots of opportunities to increase your skills as you learn. Taught in beautiful upstate New York at Sugar Maples, Center for the Creative Arts, July 27-28, 2019. To sign up visit Catskillmtn.org.



Silk Studio:
You love the look & feel of silk; now enjoy creating with this amazing fabric. A variety of silks will be used, from Charmeuse to Organza. You will learn which techniques to use for precise control, and others that are best for texture, surprises and color.

From painting to dyeing, soy wax and silkscreening, this is a chance to try it all!



Paint, Print & Enhance:
Layers of painting and printing create amazing depth and intrigue. From creating background textures to detailed imagery, you will learn to mix colors, create dynamic combinations, and techniques that enhance your imagery.

Techniques include silkscreen printing, painting and dyeing.



Landscapes!
We have all been influenced by nature's beauty. Capture that awesomeness in all its rich colors using paint on fabric. From metallic to transparent paints and mediums to thickeners, learn how to achieve outstanding results.

We'll spend time practicing, then focus on creating imagery from nature.

Wear it with Flair!
Love to show your artful flair, but not interested in sewing the whole garment? Print and paint on finished clothing!

This was printed, painted and outlined on a silk skirt and blouse. Learn the techniques on fabric, then progress to adding design and color to your garment. Light colored garments allow a wider range of colors, so keep this in mind when choosing what to bring. Dark colors will require opaque and metallic paints.

This tunic has amazing embroidery, but needed another layer to soften it. A simple leaf screen was added next to the beading, and around the bottom of the sleeves. This was printed, painted and outlined on a silk skirt and blouse. I have also found this process a lifesaver for garments that I love, but have a flaw or stain.

Created on Silk Habotai. Image was drawn on fabric. Fabric was stretched. Soy wax was brushed over entire piece. Using a tool, the wax was removed, following the design lines. Then Colorhue Dye was brushed onto fabric.
