Workshop: Creating Realism
Experimenting with fabrics to produce nature’s wide range of textures and colors is the focus this workshop. We will explore the use of discharge (using bleach), ink, crayon and pencil work, foil and painting. Students will be taken through the process of developing an original composition using the overhead projector and making individual patterns.
