Students stay at the Campus Residences just across the parking lot from the classroom, and happily spend 6-8 hours Monday - Friday creating a luscious palette of beautifully personal fabrics as you explore all things fibre related as they explore multiple techniques:

TURNING POINT, Bethany Garner



 

We start the week with dyes - and create mountains of beautifully hand dyed and painted fabrics using both FLAT DYE and DYE PAINTED (thickened dyes) technique. The dyes will remain in the classroom all week for continuous dye work as the week progresses and time permits each artist to explore to his/her hearts content! Stay into the evening and make time for stitch work as well!
