Event Archive - Fabric Painting: Your own tote or apron with Pipi Tustian:

Sat. April 10th 2021 - Sat. April 10th 2021 @  On Zoom Ladysmith BC (All Ages)
12:00pm - 4:00pm
Create your own custom painted tote or apron in this online interactive art class with textile artist Pipi Tustian. Join Pipi on Zoom for a colourful conversation where she will walk you through her pattern-building techniques and share tips on paint and fabric preparation.

We will begin with a fabric practice sampler, giving you the space to play without fear, before going on to create your very own hand-painted, washable apron or tote.

Pipi will guide, but never direct, giving you room to colour outside of the lines! This workshop will cover shape, structure, colour layering, and brush stroke exploration. All materials provided, included your very own started set of Pipi's custom paints!

All Materials Provided (Pick up at 444 Parkhill Terrace in Ladysmith, or contact [email protected] to arrange for paid shipping):
- Apron or Tote
- 8 x 3-oz jars of Pipi's custom fabric paints
- practice fabric
- paint brushes
Cost of class is $200 per participant

Before this online workshop, participants are asked to prewash and iron their apron or tote (do not use fabric softener), and prepare their workspace by covering a flat surface with paper or plastic.
