WOW!  Was this ever the greatest workshop ever!!!  

The workshop was at Pro Chem & Dye in Fall River.  

Screen, Dye and Discharge-Enlarging Your Markmaking Vocabulary

Instructor:  Kerr Grabowski

For me, it was with the right teacher, in the right place, at the right time and I am filled with inspiration and motivation and brimming over with new information and ideas!

 We learned to make screens with fiber reactive dye , as well as wax for a resist. The basic thrust of the class was to explore and expand on your mark making vocabulary with deconstructed printing, drawing fluid, wax stencils, wax rubbings, overprinting, discharge and more.

More about this later.  Now I’m going to unpack!

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.

  1. Well, that’s as good an excuse as I’ve ever heard! You should try to hook up with someone who’s going to one that you want! If I lived near you I would have been glad to have you as a passenger. And yes – I was very lucky!!!
