Pattern by Hand 101 : Iron on Tannin
At Marshfield School of Weaving : 334 Jake Martin Road Marshfield, Vermont 05658
Monday August 19 & Tuesday August 20, 2019
Explore the freedom of gesture and hand-drawn illustration in this introductory, monochrome workshop. We will be pre-treating our fabrics in a mixture of natural tannins from sumac and chestnut as well as a fatty milk. This combination of ingredients turns the whole fabric into a canvas, ready to be explored with a brush, pen, or any other means of making marks. The fabric remains a neutral/cream color while everywhere we make marks quickly transforms to gray or black.
