This workshop is designed to teach students how to paint with Procion dyes on cotton. Learning to control the dyes will be emphasized. 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 be as simple as drawings from a coloring book because you will mainly be concentrating on how to apply the dyes. Students will leave with a painted piece that could be worked into a vest, quilt, or pillow top. Let Hollis teach you her secrets for beautiful painted quilts!

Registration for this class includes show admission for Friday.
