Exploring Paint on Cloth

I’m over the moon to announce my new three-day workshop, Exploring Paint on Cloth, debuting August 5-7, 2020, at ProChemical and Dye in Fall River, Massachusetts. Signups start TODAY! We will explore ProSilk and Fabric paint (ink-like consistency), ProFAB Transparent Textile Paint and ProFAB Opaque Textile Paint. I’ll include a wide range of techniques from blendy to bold. You’ll learn which paints to use when, how to adapt paints to do what you want, and basically have a whole lotta fun, including some fun mixed media play. Click HERE to see more and sign up!

We’ll include both representational and abstract designs in our workshop. You’ll use thermofax screens, stencils, stamps, brushes, squeeze bottles and more.
And you’ll get to combine a range of techniques in this piece or one from your own imagination.
And we’ll try non-traditional surfaces including interfacing, and creating cloth that looks like it is hand-dyed, and feels like it is hand-dyed it is so supple, but is actually created with paint–in this small art quilt, the sky.

I’m so excited about the possibilities and hope you’ll join me! This week I am actually taking a workshop at ProChem, but if you have questions please do leave a comment and ask–I’ll try to answer as quickly as I can (usually in the evenings). And to make it easy for you, here’s the link to ProChem again, to sign up! I’d love to have you in my class!#sarahannsmithartist #artistauthorquilterteacher #sarahannsmithphotographer¬† #maine #surfacedesign #prochemicalanddye #screenprinting

    Can you offer a class online?

    Hi Kimberly! At the moment I don’t have a way to do that. I don’t have the knowledge to do all the filming and editing myself, and can’t afford to hire someone to do it (it would turn into a money losing proposition). Most online class companies charge so much and the teacher receives so little that this option isn’t financially viable for me, either. I would like to offer stuff online, but at the moment I just don’t see a viable way I can do it–the amount of work required would be months of effort, and the amount I’d receive would be a fraction of minimum wage. I’m sorry! Maybe a group, guild or quilt show near you would like to hire me–then I could come to you!
