In this mixed-media interdisciplinary workshop, we will be creating wall art by drawing upon techniques from both the textile and the fine art traditions. Pavlos will be sharing his signature mixed-media collage/assemblage style while workshop participants will be learning and combining two thickened dye textural screen printing techniques using thickened dyes as well as a third more painterly screen printing technique. We will stitch found objects, fabric scraps, or recycled art before (or after) screen printing onto a canvas with a 3” profile creating drama using our screen printed marks as a template for our work. This workshop holds special interest for mixed media artists, soft sculpture makers, fiber artists (quilters and surface designers), screen printers, and painters.

Day 1 and Day 2: Preparing painterly and textured screens
Day 2: Screen Printing
Day 3: Stretching the completed raw silk onto canvas and prepping for painting
Day 4: Design, painting, and stitching
Day 5: Painting
