Grownups Art Retreat
August 9 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm$40
Get away for an afternoon of art and relaxation! Activities as follows:
Learn the basics of scrunch dyeing (AKA “low water immersion dyeing”) with Erin. It’s like tie dye for grownups–more mottled, blended, and subtly beautiful than traditional tie dye patterns. Two items will be provided for you to dye and are included in the cost of the retreat. Choose from bamboo socks, a small bag, and a hand towel. If you would like to purchase cotton muslin to dye at the workshop, you may purchase yardage from Kaleidoscope at $10/yard. You will leave the workshop knowing the basics of this beautiful dye technique.
Try your hand at paint pouring on canvas with Christy. Paint pouring gives dramatic pooling, puddling, and marble-like results. While it is a relatively simple process, it can be tricky–so let Christy show you the ropes!
Time permitting, we will close out the day making coffee paintings with Christy. Aromatic and just plain fun, painting with coffee is similar to using watercolors.
We will provide you with step-by-step directions and supply lists for all of the days projects so you can try them at home.
Projects will need to dry and can be picked up during normal Kaleidoscope hours or by appointment.
Cost is $40 and class size is limited to 10 participants.
