Denise Labadie Snell(two day workshop) - Fabric Painting

         Supply List

In this hands-on fabric painting workshop where participants learn (some oftentimes rather surprising) techniques for using sun-reactive transparent color paints to create uniquely textured and colored fabric. The focus is on how best to use and layer the paint, how to use various resists, and – depending on desired results – how to most successfully influence or cause (and control) layer-by-layer differential paint absorption, diffusion, blending, and/or mottling. Resulting fabrics can be remarkable. 

 Each participant leaves the workshop with a range of their own highly textured fabric in the colors and textures that they have selected to bring unique depth and complexity to their art quilt projects. 

The two day schedule ensures plenty of time for in-depth hands-on "guided experimentation" and techniques exploration. The workshop format is also designed to provide substantial opportunities for individualized and focused one-on-one teaching and feedback. 

While Denise’s work often uses imagery of stones, this workshop is not specifically about stones, or even landscapes, but instead about fabric painting techniques capable of dramatically improving quilt color and texture, dimensionality, and design integrity, regardless of quilt theme or focus. 

Skills prerequisites: None (Beginner through Advanced) 

Wear old clothes and/or bring an apron 

There is a $25 supply fee for instructor provided paints and brushes
