Fibre Art: Eco-Printing on Felted Wool | All Levels | Thursday + Friday | Oct 28 + 29 | 9:30am-4:30pm
Register In this 2-day fibre-art workshop, you will learn two new skills: How to eco-print with plant materials onto pieces of cloth you will make; and how to make a piece of flat cloth out of animal fibres, i.e. Merino white wool. Day 1 participants will make two or three small-sized cloths for experimenting with eco-printing, and learn different ways to prepare animal protein fabrics (wool and silk) for eco-printing the next day. They will then experiment using different local leaves, onion skins, and flowers (if available) to print onto the wool. Please note we will be working without mordants or modifiers - nothing stronger than white vinegar.
Note: Most materials will be provided, however, some materials and tools need to be supplied by the participant:
Materials List (provided by participants)
Suggested list of leaves for reliable eco-printing: Rose, herbaceous geraniums, Maple, Strawberry, Smokebush (especially the purple kind), Birch, Eucalyptus, Sumac, Chesnutt, Walnut. Bring fresh leaves from your garden and if you have some mums you can spare, bring them-especially yellow mums.
• Onion skins – red and yellow (outer skins only – nothing touched directly by onion flesh)
• A pail for plant materials
• Two bath sized towels
• Spray bottle
• Two large bowls – one to hold roving, the other, clean water
• Plastic gloves
• Two 24” x 36” sheets of bubble wrap
• Twine

Rembrandt and His Contemporaries: More Than Portraits (B) | All Levels | Sat + Sun | Oct 2 + 3 | 9:30am-4:30pm
Register Rembrandt’s portraits are regarded as some of the greatest creative triumphs in the wide field of painting. His self-portraits form a unique and intimate biography, in which the artist surveyed himself without vanity and with utmost sincerity. Whether in his earlier works that earned his reputation or his later freely-brushed touches, Rembrandt’s genius stands alone. Rembrandt and his peers also explored the Amsterdam environment and told stories from antiquity, all fascinating motifs to explore. This workshop will appeal to painters of all levels, whether your interest is classical or contemporary, join us for an inspired weekend surrounded by Rembrandt and his contemporaries.
Oil, Acrylic and Watercolour painters are all welcome.
Materials not included.

Claude Monet and the Colour of Light (B) | All Levels | Sat + Sun | Nov 6 + 7 | 9:30am-4:30pm
Register Monet was the quintessential impressionist. His 1884 painting "Impression, Sunrise" gave title to the movement and the impact of his radical departure in use of colour, types of subject and method of painting, often "en plein air" are all with us today. Monet rejected the traditional approach to landscape painting and looked at the effects of light on nature itself. In his later years, his massive Waterlilies paintings presage abstract expressionism. This workshop will appeal to painters of all levels. Join us in exploring the romance of outdoor motifs with Claude Monet as our inspiration.
Oil, Acrylic and Watercolour painters are all welcome.
Materials not included.

Bien que l’atelier se déroule en anglais, un suivi individuel en français est possible.
