Monoprint with Soy wax Resist on cloth

With Melanie Testa 

Melanie Testa attended the Fashion Institute of Technology and has a degree in Textile Surface Design. Her work has been featured in Quilting Arts magazine and she is the author of the upcoming book Inspired to Quilt: Creative Experiments in Art Quilt Imagery.  

 June 13 & 14 9am-4pm

Location: San Diego (NTC Liberty Station, Point Loma area) Cost: $150 2-day workshop, plus $20 materials fee. Registration: email Jane LaFazio at PlainJaneStudio@gmail.com

You’ll be asked to send a deposit of $75 to secure your space (or full payment) with balance due May 13, 2009.

 Monotypes combine the spontaneity of printed dyes and cloth, creating a surface that is unlike any other technique. Each image can only be reproduced once, making your fabric unique and original to you. Combined with the use of Soy Wax, we will explore ideas of scale, motif, texture and depth. We will be using Procion MX dyes on cotton fabric in this two day class.

Materials include 2 yards prepared fabric for dying, fiber reactive dyes and soy wax and tools.
