Acrylic Paint Pouring

Colleen Brand

Saturday, April 13
10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Create abstract acrylic pour paintings with us!
What is acrylic paint pouring? It’s a form of abstract painting using fluid acrylic paints. It’s fun and easy!
How does it work? We’ll pour paints onto a canvas and tilt the canvas, using gravity to move the paint around. The colors swirl and create a unique abstract painting. There is no preconceived notion of what the final product will be. With this method, everyone can be an artist. No prior experience required.
Note: that final pieces require a 36 hour drying period, so pick up will be at a later date. Please come dressed appropriately because this medium can be messy.
All levels of experience welcome.

Silk Scarf Shibori

Jean-Marie Baldwin

Saturday, June 8
10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Shibori is an ancient Japanese resist-dye technique using various different folds to create repeat patterns.
This is good for beginners or experienced artists. There are no drawing skills necessary to achieve beautiful effects. This is a great way to be introduced to working with dyes on textiles. It’s good for quilters and wearable artists who would prefer to be using their own unique textile patterns or for textile artists who are looking for production techniques. We will work on silk scarves that have hand stitched hems, completing two in this workshop.
Additional information: Supply Fee of $20 due to the instructor on the day of the workshop. This fee covers two silk scarves, dyes, gloves, etc. needed for the workshop.
