Ruthie Powers Workshop – Houston

Ruthie Power-sampleHouston Area Fiber Artists
  with  Ruthie Powers 
Saturday, March 13, 2010 
9 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Bayland Community Center
6400 Bissonnet , Houston, TX 77074
$40/50 (members/non-members) Workshop Fee
$20 Materials Fee (incl. 3 yds. PFD Cotton)
We will use various printing techniques to dye cotton fabric, including stamping with sponges, rubber stamps(including some large format of her own design) and household items to create patterns in multiple colors and layers. You will end up with a bag of fabric to take home
to "batch" overnight, then wash out in the morning.
This workshop is great for those who have never dyed as well as more experienced dyers who want to learn new techniques with a group. We will play and have fun.  
At the workshop, Ruthie will have cotton PFD (prepared for dyeing) fabric in two weaves for $5.00 per yard, plus some silk scarves at cost.    

For samples of her work see her blog at         
Her rubber stamps can be seen at
