Monoprinted Cloth and the Stitched Mark with Ilze Aviks
Monday – Wednesday, August 3 – 5 | 10am – 4pm | $425 tuition + $40 materials (Students must also purchase required materials separately.) “Monoprinting” is a method used in printmaking, as well as in textiles. It simply means a one-of-a-kind print. Employing this delightful and spontaneous method with textile pigments, participants will create unique cloth for stitching and collaging. Using basic hand-stitching, you will create a series of small studies investigating the potent interaction of the stitched mark and painted cloth. We will examine how stitching can transform cloth by enhancing color, deepening space, and creating surprising textures. Emphasis will be placed on expressing your own “voice”. Come ready to explore, experiment, and surprise yourself! Monoprinting is a great way to unblock when you are creatively stuck, presenting happy “accidents” and new visual ideas. These processes are easily adapted to the home studio. Non-textile artists are welcome and no previous stitching experience is required. Please Note: This class will be held off-site at a private home in Telluride. This is a Visiting Artist class, therefore cancellations must be made more than 45 days in advance in order to qualify for a refund (less a $25 administrative fee).
