John’s Studio
Covelo, CA

tuition: $600
materials fee: $140
This course is designed as an intensive look at katazome for those artists seeking a hands on experience in paste-resist techniques. Participants will be taught individually as well as collectively, giving each participant a chance to work with the instructor on areas of interest. Working in the instructor's studio offers the emerging dye artist a unique opportunity to observe John at work first hand and to take advantage of a wide range of materials and equipment from John ’s private collection.
The materials fee includes silk, paste, stencil materials, dyes and all other consumable materials required. In addition, it includes the use of many of the artist's stencils, brushes, stretching equipment, and everything else needed in class. Participants will also have access to a great many reference materials from John ’s vast collection.
