Art You Can Walk On-Painted Floor Cloths Workshop with Margot Miller
Paint a decorative, hardwearing, washable alternative to carpet; a canvas floor cloth. (floorcloths are the forerunner of linoleum). Using simple techniques, design your own stencil for animal footprints, tribal motifs, fish, birds, patterns and textures etc. Paint cascading flowers, print real leaf prints, rag roses, dots and stripes.
Floor cloths make wonderful placemats, pet mats, boot trays etc. and can be used everywhere drips “happen”, since they can be wiped clean.
Come and enjoy an action packed workshop for students of any level. All students will take home their own designed floor cloth...art you can walk on.
Saturday, January 25 and Sunday, January 26, 9 am - 4 pm [14 h]
