Fiber Art Workshop with Lisa Kerpoe




I recently attended a fiber art workshop at the Hill Country Arts Foundation in Ingram, Tx. with fiber artist, Lisa Kerpoe.The three day workshop included dyeing fabric using prochem dyes, single and double plate monoprinting, gelatin monoprinting and much more. Lisa taught us many techniques within all those methods. You can see her website and blog by clicking on her name on my blog lists. I have included some photos of the fabric I dyed, painted and monoprinted in the workshop. The top photo shows a double plate monoprint on black fabric with metallic paints. The one on the left was dyed then monoprinted. The lower photo is a group of small pieces that were dyed.

You are welcome. I want to try a journal sometime. I put that on my "want to do list". So many projects, not enough time.

All of them look great! I love dyeing fabric, but it has been a few months since I've done any. Thanks for the lovely fabrics you sent my way too Lana. I love them!

Hi Lana, thanking for posting your blog in the QA Forum. I checked your B&B and I see a stay in the future...
Your dyed fabrics look fantastic, I hope soon to get into that. In the meantime I "take" hand dyed fabrics from a friend. Keep on blogging!
