Workshop with Kerr Grabowski, April 2008

In April, I had the pleasure of taking a deconstructed screenprinting workshop with Kerr Grabowski. We spent five days experimenting with different ways to use our screens with thickened dyes. The beauty of this process is that ugly fabric can be reworked until it’s beautiful! After this 5-day workshop, some of us hired Kerr for “private” lessons, consisting mostly of exercises in creativity and color.

I came away with a boxful of fabrics, some complete and ready for a project, and some which are in the “rework” category. It was a blast turning some of my old hand-dyed fabrics into beautiful pieces with depth and interest.

Here I am with Kerr and our class portraits. One of our creativity exercises was to make portraits of each other in a short, timed period, using colored paper. I was lucky to have Kerr as my partner, so now I am the proud owner of an original “one-of-a-kind” portrait of myself done by Kerr. Can you guess which one is me?
