Sun Printing Workshop Scheduled

There are many processes in art work that offer Magical, "Oh How Cool Is THat" moments. Sunprinting is definately one of these techniques!!! One can never be quite sure what the magic moment of removing the masking elements will reveal and the discovery is such fun!!!
On Saturday Sept.25th I will be holding a Sunprinting Workshop so anyone can expereince the magic moment of revealing their creation on fabric.
Here are the details:

Sunprint using Transparent Setacolor Textile Paint on Damask Linen dinner napkin. (It is All about the layers!!) If one looks closely at the enlarged version of this picture you can see the woven damask pattern beneath the botanical sunprints!!

WHEN: Saturday Sept. 25th 12-3pm
Where: The courtyard at Liberty Town, Fredericksburg VA.
WHAT: All supplies included, bring specific mask items if desired- paper cut outs, botanicals,
PRICE: $45.00
WHO: Twelve lucky students, children 7 and up welcome with an accompanying adult.
WEAR: Old clothes- prepare for some potentially messy fun!
HOW: Contact me via E-Mail- see my profile on the right hand side of this blog, to reserve your spot!!!
THINK: Sunny weather!!!!

This is a fabulous technique to add to your fabric surface design bag of tricks and can add wonderful textile elements to any mixed media project!!!!

I hope to see you there, if not in body then in spirit!!!!

Sounds fun! I wish I lived closer. Thank you for the well wishes for mom. Also for letting me know the glass arrived. I swear my head has been in a fog the past few weeks. I can't wait to see what you do with them. Thank you so much, I think you know how special they are to me and how special you are for making them into something I will treasure.
Would you like some sea glass to play with for yourself or your shop?

Between the sun prints, all the luscious peppers and beautiful flowers, I am overwhelmed with beauty! Thank you! xxoo

Judy said...

Wish I could be there. Even though I do sunprint here at home, it'd be so much more fun doing it with you and a host of others. So, like Sharon, I'll be there in spirit. I do like the idea of using the damask napkins.....and of course, your photos are fabulous!

Gorgeous sun prints. I love making sun prints. The sun, being outdoors, and playing. I wish I was closer and could gather you and Judy together and have a play date. Have a great weekend.

I really want to do this with different color greens and lots of leaves...can you do layers of sunprinting or can you only do one color of paint?
