Eco Dye and Collage Workshop With Sarah Rehmer May 2021
Eco Dye and Collage - Exploring Natural Patterns and Colors Workshop
3 Day Workshop: May 14-16
9 am to 4 pm each class
Limit 5 Students
Supply fee $30 to cover eco-dye and rust printing supplies, etc
We will kick our workshop experience off by making a few of our own papers through various processes such as rust printing and eco-dyeing with plants and flowers. We will explore both boiled and steamed eco-dying on a variety of papers and even some fabric. From there we can further alter the papers with drawing ink, graphite, and more to make collage materials that are works of art all on their own.
After making a stash of papers to work with, we will begin to use them in collage and mixed media works on panels. This workshop will utilize acrylic mediums and paints. Students will be encouraged to try a variety of papers and even fabric in their collage explorations. We will take time during the workshop to discuss layout and use of color as we create final works.
All eco-dye and rust printing supplies, as well as some basic tools will be provided, but students will be encouraged to bring a variety of found papers and other materials/small objects to use. No prior experience required, but general art-making experience is helpful
