Instructor: Joanne Suther
Discover the patterns and design elements of ancient Egypt as we draw inspiration from the featured exhibition, Queen Nefertari: Eternal Egypt as well as ancient Egyptian art in the permanent collection. Explore the process of fabric design as you experiment with several techniques including ice dying using fiber reactive dyes, creating stencils and hand-carved stamps for printing, and hand stitching. The textiles created will be transformed into either a rolled or folded journal. Class will sketch in the Egyptian galleries to develop ideas for their fabric design.
