Fusion

July 13-17 / 19-23, 2016 - instructor Irit Dulman

Fusion Botanical Print & Natural Dyeing

In this workshop the focus will be on the fusion between natural dyeing and botanical prints. Students will learn the subject of mordant for different fibers as well as different dyes that create a wide palette of colours. We will explore the combination of the dyes with different techniques of botanical print by creating a background colour and different effects with botanical print such as discharge print, etc...

Through trial and error with different plants the students will be able to recognize the interesting results and then they will develop the results to high quality designed fabrics.

We will also explore techniques possible to control the composition of the leaves layout on the fabric.

note: from July 19-23, 2016 there will be a second fusion class

Irit Dulman

Irit Dulman works in her studio in Givatayim, just outside TLV, but her inspiration seems to lack borders of time and place. Her colours, textures and designs are sensually bold, seductive, introvert as well as daring. There is nothing obvious in her work, for it has it’s own reason and feminine insight.

note

All workshops are being taught in Dutch and/or English. We will serve fresh coffee and homemade lunches with healthy salades, farmers bread and several Dutch cheeses.
