Design your own Fabric Inspired by Textile Traditions
Wednesday, October 2 from 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$20 – $25
The Museum of Russian Art is pleased to invite you to a hands-on workshop with Becka Rahn in conjunction with the exhibition Village Wardrobes: Traditional Dress from Western and Central Ukraine
Be inspired by the shapes and colors of the costumes in Village Wardrobes: Traditional Dress from Western and Central Ukraine and create your own digitally printed fabric design. Artist Becka Rahn will help you to create your own pattern inspired by the exhibition, then show you how to manipulate it using simple software to help you make repeating shapes and textures that can be printed onto fabric or paper. You don’t have to know anything about sewing or computers to be able to create your own surface designs; beginners are welcome! Each participant will get a swatch of their fabric design to keep and have the opportunity to contribute to a collaborative project that will be on display at the Museum.
The objects on display are drawn from the expansive folk art collection of Susan Johnson.
This workshop will be available on both October 1 and October 2 at The Museum of Russian Art | 6:30-8:30 pm
CLASS REGISTRATION: TMORA Members $20 | General Admission $25
Each workshop is limited to 12 participants. Advance registration is encouraged. The Museum of Russian Art features free parking directly across the street (Diamond Lake Road) in the Mayflower Church parking lot.
