About this Workshop
This event will be a fun experience of learning and exploring techniques and design layout of layers of art and words. You will create several pieces building layers using sumi, tech, and walnut inks, bleach, pastels, silk dyes, gesso, colored pencil, embossing, stencils, resists, and more. Combining various techniques will enable you to find new creative ways to enhance backgrounds and layouts for your calligraphy. In layered art, beautiful unexpected outcomes can result from the exploration process.
