Travel Journaling with Watercolor

Teacher: Tina Somers
Cost: $55

It’s so easy these days to snap quick pictures of things that interest us and catalogue them in our digital records. It takes seconds to capture something we find beautiful and we often move on before we really see what we’re looking at. Using a sketchbook or journal as a way to record the same experience slows us down, gets our heads out of our phones and helps us practice being in the moment. In this class we’ll explore the journal as an art form, and how to manually capture scenes and elements from your daily life or from the trip of your lifetime. We’ll look at what elements to draw, how to lay out your sketchbook page, and how to capture a scene quickly before the moment passes or you get too hungry ;)

Skills

Students will be introduced to the concept of having a personal journal as art form. They’ll learn how to compose and layout a page, and learn quick watercolor and pen and ink techniques - hopefully leaving inspired and ready to document any future travels they take.

take home

Travel art kit with journal, pencil, small travel watercolor set, and brush.

special note

We’ll meet at the picnic tables at Steamer Lane Supply shop (located near where Pelton Street meets West Cliff - in the same building as the restrooms) for a talk and demo from Tina and then we’ll have chairs for you to set up wherever along West Cliff you would like to draw and paint. Tina will circulate around to check in with everyone and we will meet again back at the picnic tables at the end of the workshop.

Natural Dyeing with Cochineal - Design and Dye a Napkin Set

Teacher: Katilin Bonifacio
Cost: $65

Have you ever wondered where the colors in your clothing, food, cosmetics, and paints and pigments comes from? If you’ve ever worn lipstick, eaten a strawberry yogurt or Starbucks Frappucino, or even had a favorite red sweater, chances are it was colored with pigment from cochineal. The commonly used red dye is made from ground scale insects native to South America and the extracted dye yields a range of beautiful red hues from light pink to magenta to royal red. Join me to mix a vat of cochineal dye and color a set of four cotton dinner napkins. We’ll learn about the history of cochineal usage in our own culture and across the world, powder and extract the pigment together, become familiar with the process of treating our fibers before dyeing, use traditional folding techniques to create patterns, and complete a unique and beautiful set of napkins that will be the perfect conversation starter at your next dinner party. 

Students are welcome to bring a small piece from home to dye in the event of leftover time. Keep in mind cochineal and other natural dyes are only effective on natural fibers, so be sure your piece is cotton, linen, silk, bamboo, wool, or leather.

Skills

Dye resist folding techniques, cochineal dye methods and history.
