possibility of Els van Baarle workshop in BC

Greetings All

Many of you have had the wonderful opportunity to work with Els at previous workshops with her at FibreWorks or other venues. Els is a wonderful teacher and provides a great opportunity to explore the techniques of batik on cloth and on paper, incorporating various dye/wax/print techniques to create unique art pieces. 

Els is available to return to FibreWorks May 2013 to provide a “master class” in the art of batik.  This would be a 3-day session, (see Els’ description below)

Masterclass working with wax and dye

Each student will work on her own theme
Participants will  be encouraged to develop a design from inspiration.

There will be exercises  on color and design: these exercises will take one hour each day.
Subjects are: focal point, balance, picture frame, foreground/background , complimentary colors ,
We will look at the contrasts of colors as in the color theory from Johannes Itten.

Preliminary calculations appear that the class would cost approx. $500 for the 3 days.

If you are interested, could you please send me a reply asap, so that we can continue making arrangements?  I need to let Els know so that she can continue to plan to come to Canada or make alternate arrangements.

Thank you for your continued interest in surface design and fibre art!
