  COMPLEX CLOTH
      Creating Fabrics with Dyes and Pigments

 SUMMER SCHOOL FOR THE ARTS

JULY 31-August 4, 2017, Brockville Campus


A full credit component of the TEXTILE ARTS  Program at

  St. Lawrence College
 
CLASS IS A GO!!!! We will hope to see you along with a great group of new friends on Monday, July 31st in Brockville!
 

I would be so pleased to have you join us if your week of July 31 to August 4th is clear and coming on over to our Brockville Campus at St. Lawrence College is a possibility... this is a week of creative play time that will result in a terrific stash of all new, original fabric to inspire your new textile work. Lots of time for stitching, dye work, screen printing and more.
 
So much opportunity exists in a full week class to learn, share with like-minded students and create some beautiful new work. Pull a carpool of friends together and make this a week that could change your 2017 year of creativity, exploration and learning in a supportive and encouraging environment!
 
Our students are looking forward to acquiring new skills and leaning techniques that further hone their existing skills and having time to translate them into dynamic creations.  
 
You are encouraged to bring along works in progress, sketchbooks filled with ideas, and plans for work that is waiting to take form but may need encouragement to be released into reality. Using your sketchbook is encouraged during the week and recording the beauty of Brockville and the St. Lawrence River!
 
Your favourite fabric/tools/stitching supplies will be coming with you from home. (Supplies list with paid registration).

 
Our students receive a comprehensive set of course handouts and and have access to Bethany's extensive resource library, daily video lessons and some project based tools and supplies will be available in the classroom as a part of the Instructor’s teaching package.    
 
So whether you love to design and stitch pieces that use your own hand painted and dyed fabrics, or bring together a wonderful stash of fabrics you have been accumulating and want to use, this is a class that will help you take steps toward those goals!  
 
Notes:
 
This full-week, Monday to Friday course is designed for those with a passionate interest in fibre arts and as a vehicle for artistic expression and creation of functional art and personal, original textile design. 
 
Students will study complex but easily learned processes for fabric coloration and dye work, including pole wrapped Shibori and Arashi patterning. We will work together to explore a complete series of Indigo studies, and develop a personal inventory of beautiful colour and pattern on cloth during our week together and more.

While on-campus residence may NOT available at this late date, many area hotels and B & B residences are in the area for those who would like to join us. Share the cost with several friends for a great chance to learn together.
 
Plan to use this experience as a “get away” for personal development of a new stash of fabrics for work as the year progresses, exhibition calls that are on the calendar, or if you just need a time to focus on your new work.
 
There will be time for machine work and lots of design play, and the studio classroom will be open 8 am through 10 pm each day.
 
We have a terrific group of students enrolled who bring with them all levels of experience. You can be assured that the classroom is  a place to play and your friends, old and new will certainly be eager to work along with you in support of our warm and welcoming creative learning  environment.
