From Forest to Fibre
From Forest to Fibre: Eco Printing On Silk, Cotton, and Paper

In this workshop, we will explore different ways to draw the dyestuff out of local leaves to print directly on silk, cotton, and paper. The results are surprising and magical, and the possibilities endless. Over the course of the 3 hours, learn two different approaches to eco printing, and the effects of four different mordants! Go home with a collection of printed material to use in your quilting, scrapbooking, or textile art. Or join Chandra's bookbinding workshop and make book cloth (and books) with some of it!

$10 materials fee, payable directly to the instructor. All other tools are provided in the cost of the workshop. Please wear clothing that can be stained.

a little about Chandra
Chandra Rice uses a complex and creative combination of textile, ceramics, glass, and wood to engage the viewer in a consideration of the separation between viewer and creator, questioning traditional dualities such as maker vs. artist; functional vs. fine art; women’s work vs. real work.

Her primary challenge as an artist is the idea that art must say something - most specifically something worth saying. In a world that devalues women’s voices, that celebrates only the visual appeal of our self and our work, that encourages us to be small and self controlled, she strives to strip herself of the voice of the ‘other’. Making is her means to accomplish this.

In her exhibitions and workshops, nationally and internationally, Chandra Rice strives to provide women (and men) with the means to engage directly with exciting materials (as viewers, curators, or creators), encouraging personal growth and meaning-making in each encounter.

Winner of numerous awards and residencies, Chandra Rice exhibits across Canada and Europe extensively, and her work is included in public and private collections in Canada, the USA, England, the Netherlands, and Italy. Known for her energetic and informative workshops, she shares her passion for fibre, ceramics, and natural materials with creatives world-wide.
