Mexico: Oaxaca Black, White & Infinity November 12 – 14, 2016

The 10th International Shibori Symposium (10ISS) will host my three half-day workshop introducing mark making by whitening organza (de-gumming), followed by Sumi ink on fabrics. After establishing a palette of fabric samples we will further embellished them with colorful wool. After a little experience you can full them into unique felt items such scarves, wrap skirts, berets or framed art works. We will study together in this intensive and expect to start samples for a project to complete at your own speed later at home.

3 Half-Day Workshop with Jorie Johnson: “Sumi Ink, Silk and Felt” *waitlist open*

11/12 – 11/14 | 14:00 – 17:30 | CASA | $275 (+$25 materials fee)

Having a valuable supply of interesting fabrics at your fingertips is the key to designing fresh and exciting work. This workshop will cover skills not commonly taught in natural dye classes, but essential to creating intricate layers of design that carry your personal signature. Employ clamp compression on silk with sericin erasure to produce repetitive motifs, learn how to apply carbon sumi ink to fabric, and create three-dimensional colorful embellishments through traditional feltmaking. Each half-day class focuses on building layers of design elements (color, texture, line) to create a small felted scarf.

Experience: beginning to advanced
