Join world-renowned artist Hollis Chatelain as she shows you how to paint with Procion dyes on cotton and control the dyes for a beautiful effect. Among other things, Hollis will cover blending, layering, special effects, and painting without bleeding while using no resists. All of these techniques can be used to create images as complex as portraits or as simple as a line on a scarf. Each student is asked to bring two or three 18″ x 20″ designs or drawings that they will transfer onto cloth and then paint. These drawings can even be drawings from a coloring book as students will be concentrating on how to apply the dyes. Students will leave with an original painted piece that can be worked into a one-of-a-kind vest, quilt, or pillow top. Lunch will be provided.
