Discover glorious ways to print on fabric using permanent textile dyes. With Pat’s techniques for applying color from scrapers to rollers to print methods, this class layers techniques on fabric that becomes one-of-a-kind. We’ll start with simple layers, then add on a variety of printing techniques making fabric that contains bold, graphic elements.
Textures from found “printing plates” and shapes will be cut from substrates adding depth to the fabric. Through monoprinting and then screen printing, images develop that expand the difference between organic and clean-cut forms. Pull out all the stops to explore printing with a large scale that is repeated, layered, and varied with color. As we print, color theory, color mixing, and dye values of the finished print fold into the day. Works in a series allows us to produce fabric for works on fiber, quilting, and applied surface design.
With a critical eye, Pat will show guide you to design a piece that will hold interest, balance and is a strong print. You’ll learn safe work practices and tips on setting up a simple dye studio. If you’ve worked with Pat before, this class is a chance to take your printing further. The goal is to print as much fabric as possible with glorious color, pattern and texture. All possible, all in a week!
Note: There is a $50.00 material fee for this workshop.
About Pat Pauly
With works that carry a graphic, color-saturated palette using her hand printed fabric, Pat Pauly’s fiber art is seen around the world. Her textile work began in the early 1980s and was first accepted in Quilt National ’83, and has continued being shown in major exhibitions. Her fiber art’s distinction is with using a strong abstraction of natural forms and complex color combinations. Her work is in both private and public collections.
With a degree in art, and graduate work in design and fine art, Pat chose fiber art as the perfect amalgam of construction, painting and printmaking. She has taught throughout the United States, Canada, and Australia, in design and surface design. Her lectures are fast paced, funny, and often speak on the intersection of traditional quilt arts with contemporary fiber art. She brings the same pace and relaxed atmosphere to her workshops.
Often seen in exhibitions, Pat’s work is also widely published, and she has appeared in Quilting Arts televised segments. If not teaching, she is found in her studio in Rochester, New York where she has the best advantage of being surrounded by great artists as well as the beauty of the Finger Lakes.
