Week One of Printing on Fabric


Last night was week one of a printing on fabric workshop that my friend, Allan Oliver, and I are teaching at Trinity. We have two wonderful assistants, both named Liz!! Mr C and I went down in the afternoon and raised two tables on pvc pipe. Then, I covered the tables with plastic, two layers of felt and muslin. I set up tubs for water to wash screens and stencils.

I also set up a sample for a demo to show how to layer designs with paint. I sponge painted a background.


We had a full house, many of the participants were men! I think everyone had a good time.


We have a big empty bulletin board where we hung work to dry.


Here are samples of some of the best work.



Today, I am just plain pooped. It has been a busy week so I am taking it easy.

    What a fabulous community you have and the artwork is beautiful. I love the dandelion like print. Rest, relax, and enjoy your day!

  2. Absolutely fabulous!Community art at its best! I’ve done a lot of art projects with children and helped 1st and 2nd graders in my childhood grade school on Douglas Island, Alaskan rip fabric to their own size and make kuspuks..cotton parkas with hoods. One of the best three years of my making life was working with those kids and their parents.Love this stuff!
