About the Workshop:
We will explore various application techniques and tools, with possible results ranging from intricate details, bold geometrics, to fields of abstract textures. In this 5 hour class, time will be given to practice techniques before creating an original design to suit each individual’s vision. You will leave with a set of practice swatches and a finished 22” square of organic cotton. You’ll be given the option to finish this piece as a wearable bandana or a luminous window hanging. Designed for ages 18 and up.
