Nanga Bush Retreat & Fiona Duthie Workshop


Layers in Design with Fiona Duthie

Will explore inks, paints, markers and gold leaf for printing and drawing on cloth and on finished felt, to individualize your felt projects. Through nature observation and creative exercises, we look at where to find inspiration and use it to make your own personalized fabrics through abstraction in colour, forms, text, asemic writing and gestures in markmaking. We’ll paint fabric with colour, black and white and metallics, using paints and inks to create durable, complex cloth designs that can be collaged into dynamic nuno/laminated felt surfaces.  We’ll make prefelts from these,and discuss ways these can used in many styles of projects, covering design process and composition, reviewing colour theory, contrast and scale.  Participants will complete the workshop with a wide range of printed cloth and handmade nuno prefelts to bring into future projects.
