Linda Rawlings Teaches Exploring Techniques on Fabric and Paper – Marbleizing on Silk and Print Design June 16 at the Arkansas Craft School

Register by June 9th

Marbleizing on Silk and Print Design
Create beautiful personalized fabrics with the multiple techniques taught in this workshop, starting with Japanese marbleizing on silk scarves. Students will try block printing on fabric or paper, working from your choice of ready-made blocks or cutting your own designs onto small blocks or erasers. Flower pounding is a way of transferring natural pigments and making them permanent. Bleached leaf designs look great on dark fabrics, including denim.

This class is for all levels and allows you to create one of a kind designs, whether you are a quilter, scrapbooker, journaler, mixed media artist or someone who just loves creating wearable art.
