Hello Fabric Lovers!

   Have you always wanted to create your own printed fabrics?
   For a fun, creative and colourful experience I will be teaching the 

COMPLEX CLOTH" workshop 
   on Saturday, November 30 at the Colour Vie studio in Toronto.

   To reserve your space simply e-mail me at colorvie@istar.ca
   or call 416- 532-7435 (local calls) or 1-877-425-8379 (toll free in Canada) 

 You will explore the use of pigments on fabric, learn how to mix colours, make stamps and stencils and
print your own designs in an inspirational and encouraging environment. 

 I will show you how to create your own designs on fabric by manipulating texture and colour 
 with an emphasis on layering transparent and opaque colours and images. 
 The result: unique fabrics with depth and complexity.  

 Just imagine the opportunity for creating personal statements on fabrics 
 that you can use in your textile projects!

 For detailed information about this and other workshops as well as yummy photographs of fabrics  created at the studio please  visit:

 Looking forward to seeing you at the Colour Vie studio!
