This is a three day workshop where you will be exposed to various surface design techniques on paper that can be easily translated to fabric. We start with the creation of a sketch/workbook. We will make paste paper for the covers then bind it with coptic stitch. This book will hold experiments as well as ideas developed over the weekend.

This year marks our 8th Maine Event in Searsport. This is a jam packed weekend starting with all day dyeing on Friday. We have indigo vats open and available all weekend as well as instruction in various Shibori techniques to create amazing pieces.











This year we will be using soy wax mixed with MX dyes processed with steam on silk, linen and all plant based fibers. This is a process originated by Jane Dunnewold and the results are amazing.



We will also learning two great Monoprinting techniques with very different results. One technique is line monoprint and the other is called "Sloppy Monoprints". I learned this technique from Claire Benn and Leslie Morgan.
