In this workshop students will work layer upon layer to build patterned cloth with depth and expression. Through a combination of feltmaking, silk degumming, and the application of Sumi ink to silk (or bast-fibre loose-weave or Washi paper) students will create work, either wearable or fine art, with striking pattern and texture. Degumming silk while simultaneously creating a pattern, producing a Habotai-type motif within the organza fabric is fascinating and creates a layered base of accents, designs, and two-tone colour. The results may be original fine-art feltworks, three dimensional objects, or a palette of fabrics for later use in garments and accessories. This class generates the most original work of students I have ever witnessed.
