Digital Mixed Media Fiber Journals

Only one month until my workshop at Hudson River Valley Fiber Workshops in Greenville,  New York. We will create "Digital Mixed Media Fiber Journals" for 5 days and stay at the lovely
Greenville Arms Inn.  One of the marvelous results of working on art for 5 days is the opportunity for fearless creating.  The more you work, the better you get. In a 5 day, retreat situation, magic happens with your art.

The workshop will have a digital element so the participants will learn how to manipulate fabric for printing.  We will precoat fabric,  print images and learn what is necessary to obtain a quality print on fabric.  The fabrics we print will be an added element in our journals or art books.

Pima tex cotton, organdy, watercolor paper, lutradur and tyvec will be among the surfaces printed. Heat distressing some of the printed surfaces, along with other fabrics will give a textural element to our pieces. Working with digital prints and manipulating them into collage makes for interesting journal pages.  Expand your thinking on how to use photographs and images in your mixed media art and journals by printing on these surfaces.
I will have tons of pieces from my stash for everyone to use, even some printed beverage cans.  There will be plenty of opportunity to get private instruction and stretch in you knowledge on digital printing and journal making in every aspect.
