Jorie Johnson Masterclass

 
Two specific methods of textile design with feltmaking will be taught. Employing a natural soda bath we will erase the negative to produce patterning on silk; water soluble soot ink, applied by brush and homemade marking utensils will provide unique expression on fabric to which the addition of your own wool color will follow. Concentration on scarf blanks and working in a series we will degum (white), apply Sumi (black) and add wool (infinite color) motif to enhance your “sketches”. We finish with a discussion and suggestions on how to incorporate the newly produced fabrics in future felt work. You will leave with original fabrics to admire for years.
