Illustrative Painting Class ! October 8th : 2-5pm
Where : 1134 President Street
When : Sunday, October 8th
Join me for an afternoon of painting with petals , teas and natural dyes.
This is an afternoon of experimenting with tea paints, exploring your creativity and figure drawing.
Too often we aren't allowed to let loose and make without expectation. This afternoon is meant for you to let loose and tap into your creativity and wild side through playing with the medium of natural dyes. Finger painting allowed. In moderation...
I will provide natural watercolors, natural dyes, watercolor paper and a variety of brushes and mark making tools on an immersive tablescape for you to play with.
I will begin with leading a few illustrative exercises for you to get loose and comfortable with exploring the medium for the first 45 minutes of class. The final hours are rest of the session are up to you! I will be present to help with any questions you may have. We will provide natural wine and non - alcoholic beverages along with light snacks. Feel free to bring your own brushes and paper or projects you have been working on. You will receive water color paper.
This class is for all skill levels. Beginners encouraged! If you would like to buy this class as a gift, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will forward the class information.
Botanical Dyeing Wedding Service
HOW IT WORKS
We use a natural dyeing process called Bundle dyeing. It works through using steam and non - toxic mordants to transform the clients bridal bouquets into beautiful floral prints.
The process will take one month to 6 weeks from the delivery
of the flowers and the confirmation of the purchase order. We will need approximately three of the wedding arrangements for the process, depend-ing on the garment chosen. After the wedding, they can be sent in airtight containers (I.e., ziplock bags, ball jars), and we would prefer them dried.
We can derive color from most flowers/greens, including white. Please note, however, that colors do NOT come out in this process as the same color as the flower. Because of our rust based mordant the palette typically consists of blues, grays, greens and purple tones. Sometimes eucalyptus will turn red.
