nicola-brown181Workshop#1  Intensive Two Day Natural Printing Workshop

 Nicola Brown from Ireland will be presenting this workshop on NATURAL PRINTING (www.clasheen.com).

During this intensive two-day workshop, participants will explore the fascinating and exciting art of printing on protein based fabric and paper using natural materials from the hedgerow, kitchen and garden!
Using simple, easy to find natural plant materials, bundles will be created by tying the organic matter up tightly in various weights of felt, silk, wool and silk/wool blends. Nicola will bring a good selection of samples with her for participants to study and she’ll explain how she achieves different effects and strong leaf outlines depending on fabric pre-treatment, materials used, pot selection and various other determining factors.
Class:  April 17-18, 2015, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Tanque Verde Lutheran Church, Linder Hall,  8625 E. Tanque Verde Road, Tucson.

 Workshop#2 One Day Advanced Natural Printing Workshop On Cellulose Fabrics

Printing on cellulose fabrics is a much more time consuming process than printing on felt, silk and wool.  Results can be varied and are often disappointing. During this one day class, participants who have previously completed a natural printing workshop with Nicola will be able to learn the different ways that cellulose fabric may be encouraged to hold a print. Nicola’s been having great success with linen and cotton this year; achieving  really clear and beautiful leaf imprints.  Some  pre-treatments are very time consuming and possibly may not be to everyone’s liking or even smell, others are quicker and seem to result in good prints and colorfast results. This advanced class will share the tips and tricks that Nicola is finding helpful in her own artistic practice to achieve good prints on linen and cotton.
Class:  April 19, 2015, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Tanque Verde Lutheran Church, Linder Hall,  8625 E. Tanque Verde Road, Tucson.
Cost:  $90, $50 deposit due upon registration, and is nonrefundable, full payment in due Feb. 15, 2015.  Make check payable to Karen Herhold with notation of class name.  Receipt will be emailed to you.
Fees for supplies will be provided at a later date.
