How About Some Exciting Surface Design Workshops?

Surface Design Workshops are in full swing here in Victoria, BC with lots of creative designs and beautiful fabrics coming out of the studio!
I have two more workshops scheduled for this month and there's still time to register. You can get the full details here:

Colour Blocking
February 24, 2015  9:30-12 noon
Try screen printing with thickened dyes to create “colour blocking”! By using an open screen, with no images masked on the screen, students can achieve large areas of one or several colors that can mix and combine on the fabric. These fabrics are perfect to use in piecing, as backgrounds for appliqué or embellishments and clothing, Learn to use value in an important way by changing the dye pastes to suit your needs! this technique was featured in a recent issue of Quilting Arts magazine.
Fee includes all dyes and chemicals. Your supply list will be sent when registration is complete.

Gelatin Plate Printing (with a Gelli Plate)

Create amazing prints on fabric without a press by using a simple gelatin-like plate. Use stamps, art tools, bubble wrap, stencils and more for exciting mark-making effects on your “Gelli” plate. Printed fabric is perfect for small art, collage, cards and home decor.
Discover the excitement! Fee includes a 6″ x 6″ Gelli Plate to take home, plus all paints and mark-making tools, your supply list will be sent when registration is complete.

Hi! I just discovered your blog and really love it. I'm a fellow surface designer, although I'm much less experienced than you! I was wondering, have you heard of the website Skillshare? I would love to take one of your workshops but I live far away, so I thought something like Skillshare would allow you to teach a course online so people like me could learn from you, too. Anyway, just a thought. Glad to have found your blog!
