Explore your personal iconography and stories, while using dyes and pigments to decorate cloth. Pursue independent projects under the instructor’s guidance. Techniques taught may include (but not be limited to) simple silk screen, mono-printing, dyeing and direct painting. We’ll also discuss and try different ways to prepare and finish 2- and 3-D works for exhibition and display. Work at your own pace with a variety of tools at your disposal, experimenting with methods and ideas, and spend an enjoyable week with a tribe of like-minded individuals who all love color, fabric, dyes and paint.
Much like a musical conversation, Stephanie Lewis Robertson sings to her hand-dyed and -printed fabrics as she works, creating constructions that reflect her interest in spirituality, ritual, music and the power of women. Her work is seen in Indianapolis area collections, exhibits and shows, and awards include three Indiana Arts Commission Individual Artists Grants. Stephanie’s day job is Fine Arts Program Chair at Ivy Tech Community College, IN. www.stephanielewisrobertson.comNo tags for this post.
