Collage with Jessica Wohl

Spend the afternoon learning about collage and making your own. This workshop will start with a brief history of the medium, and will be followed by demonstrations and an exploration of cutting and gluing techniques. We will then spend time making our own collages. While many collage materials will be provided, students are encouraged to come to the workshop with their own meaningful paper materials, photographs and ephemera to incorporate into their works. The workshop will conclude with a discussion of the works we create. See Jessica's work.

Printing Fabric with Sabeth Jackson

Learn how to design and print your own fabric for clothing, furniture, and other decorating purposes. This workshop will cover the basics of creating a design, introduction to the materials used, making relief printing blocks with craft foam, and printing with dye and ink. Students will learn how to: prepare a stamp, prepare fabric for printing, mix colors, and print their own tote bag. Participants are encouraged to bring drawings or copies of images they would like to use (bold, simple shapes and silhouettes work best). No previous experience with printmaking necessary.

Sabeth Jackson is a printmaker, painter, artisan, and daydreamer who lives in Sewanee, Tenn. Her drawings, paintings, and prints are largely figurative and influenced by myth, storytelling, and the use of archetypes.She enjoys drawing, painting, and printmaking, as well as just about anything related to textiles (pattern design, dyeing, sewing, weaving, felting, knitting, crochet and embroidery). Sabeth studied printmaking and painting at Colorado Mesa University and the University of Oregon, and has taught block printing workshops for the past 8 years.
