All Things Paper: More Marvels of Marbling
Carey Watters continues her series of workshops at Lynden that introduce participants to a variety of techniques related to paper, from surface design to bookmaking. Though there is a progressive element to the workshops, beginning with simpler processes and moving toward more complex techniques and structures, they are designed so that you can take them sequentially or individually. The first series will focus on paper marbling and book structures made from marbled paper. Marbling is a mysterious art form that is fun and accessible to people of all ages and abilities. Students will learn techniques for marbling paper and finish the day by making a book with some of their own marbled paper; experienced students will tackle more elaborate book structures. Bring a bag lunch and beverages and dress for the outdoors. We’ll be making use of Lynden’s 40 beautiful acres during our breaks, weather permitting. We have aprons, but please wear clothes suitable for artmaking.
Japanese Earth Pigment Dyeing Workshop
Fee: $60/ $54 members (all materials included). Registration: Space is limited; advance registration required. Hand-dye your own Japanese artisan cotton gauze scarf, baby onesie set, or silk scarf using simple shibori techniques to create designs. Perfect for those who have been taking Kelly Lahl’s Silk Scarf Painting workshops, Jamie Lea Bertsch's Shibori with Natural Dyes workshop, or for those interested in exploring different hand-dyeing processes. In this workshop we'll experiment with Japanese Bengala dyes made from iron oxide derived from the soil. The iron oxide is baked to create a range of "mud" dyeing pigments that create beautifully subdued, earthy colors. This simple and fun hands-on process is very gentle on the environment and humans, so it's a great way to begin dyeing your own fabric at home. It's child-friendly, too. Please note: these dyes contain latex.
