Izabela Sauer’s innovations in surface design emerge from a passion for texture and colour. Her method of first hand-painting silk and then applying the arashi shibori technique produces a finished cloth with an unusual sculptural life.
In this workshop Izabela will teach a range of silk-painting techniques (watercolour, gutta resist lines, thickened dyes) and how to deploy these techniques on a variety of silks.
With painted fabric in hand, Izabela will demonstrate the application of arashi shibori pleating techniques. This workshop will provide a good opportunity to work closely with a successful working artisan in an intimate environment.
Students will have time to produce their own pieces. Izabela will give an overview of the art with both visuals and finished textiles.
This workshop is suitable for both beginners and students with previous experience.
