The Monday Club of Webster Groves presents Color on Cloth - Textile Workshop with visiting artist Kelsey Viola Wiskirchen.
In this workshop, participants will join Wiskirchen in the studio to dye a vibrantly colorful silk scarf and cotton scarf. Learn the same dye process Kelsey used to create colors of fabric incorporated in her exhibition, "Reflections on Cloth," on view at the Monday Club in St. Louis from September 8-October  29, 2019. Learn how to use fiber-reactive dyes that become permanent through a steam-setting process. Using the Itajime Shibori process, you will learn how to create geometric patterning with multiple layered colors of dye. This will be a great way to meet the artist and create a unique wearable artwork of your own.
Workshop held at the Monday Club on Wednesday, September 18, 2019, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. $50, incl. materials; $40/Monday Club Member. To register, email Kelsey at violatextiles@gmail.com.
