This is a three-day technique workshop, and the participants will receive a complete handbook that they can refer to later. We will experience four methods for putting images on fabric — photographs, scans, drawings, and photograms made from various objects. The resulting fabric can be used for art projects, memory quilts, artist books, and clothing. There is a materials fee and I provide all the materials, fabric, and equipment.

Although it covers a lot of material, at the end of the class, participants should have enough experience and information to choose which methods suit their purposes best, and be able to continue working with those processes at home. We will produce negatives and positive transparencies on inkjet printers to use with SolarFast light-sensitive dye and silk screening. We will do inkjet transfers (which can be used to put large images on cloth and clothing), and make inkjet prints directly on fabric (which gives great detail and color, but only on pieces of fabric small enough to go through the printer). And we will look at heat transfers of various kinds. It would be useful for participants to have some knowledge of computer photo software (we will be working with Adobe Photoshop Elements), and they will be able to use their own photos for experimentation. Enrollment will be limited to eight people.


MICKIE MCCORMIC has taught in California and Oregon since 2000 and on the East Coast before that. In recent years her quilts, featuring image transfers, have been in national juried shows, and she exhibits regularly in Mendocino venues.
