Stamp, Sketch, Type: Mark-Making on Fabric

with India Johnson
Wednesday, August 10; 6–8pm CT

Learn foundational techniques in drawing, stamping, and typewriting on fabric that are core to India Johnson’s book and textile art. This virtual workshop will focus on generating freehand marks, patterns, lettering, and line work on muslin and/or linen. These techniques can be used for books and artwork, as well as incorporated into craft projects. Be ready to experiment and play–we’ll make samplers to build a vocabulary of marks.

All skill levels welcome
Certificate: 2 hours, Category B or D
