2890 | Folds for Clamp-Dye Resist (Full)
Itajime shibori, or clamp-resist dyeing, is based on wooden boards held on either side of accordion folded cloth, then dyed. This class is an in depth exploration of how the different folds, and the location, shape, and size of the wood boards, influence the overall pattern. At least fifteen different folds will be demonstrated and students will use Procion MX fiber reactive dyes on cellulose fibers (cotton, rayon, Tencel, hemp and linen). Students will leave with dozens of dyed examples and the ability to further explore their personal pattern vocabulary. Please see SSA website for a list of materials. For images of Noble's work, visit her website, www.elinnoble.com. Please bring a lunch both days.

8200 | Experimental Drawing
Through a series of projects combining a variety of media techniques with the use of appropriation and collaboration, Wheeler will challenge students to rethink everything they thought they knew about drawing. This will be a fun yet intense three-day course designed to lead students down avenues they didn't know existed. Without giving away too much, the work made will include collaborations with classmates, drawing on top of thrift store paintings and work on readymade ceramic objects. Please see SSA website for a list of materials.
