Workshop Description and Supply List:
The Tea Dye Exercise Workshop
By Cindy Evans
Artists have a special gift, I think we all have unique voices and can speak through our work in wonderful ways. I believe this is not only because we have talent, but also because we have a desire to express ourselves and our thoughts using a visual language. In response to the challenges and joys of creative expression, I offer a workshop to demonstrate some of the unusual creative techniques I use when I paint. One of those ways is by using a tea dye process. Tea dying works much like the long time tradition of tie dying; only instead of ink you can use watercolor paper and tea. It creates wonderful soft patterns that you can interpret in any way you want, and allows you to use your imagination to find imagery and develop a painting.
In this workshop we will provide step-by-step instructions for artists who want to jump-start their creative process, walking through this tea dye process, renewing our pursuit of the joy of painting.
