They will explore a variety of techniques from ombre rolls, two-coloured designs, resist, jigsaw prints and collagraph techniques. They will learn how to off-set print and how to register stamps so that printed fabric has a professional look. Participants will take inspiration from the natural environment as well as learn about abstract design and colour theory.
All classes run from 9 – 4 pm daily. Studios are also open after hours.

MO HAMILTON is a printmaker, textile artist, mixed-medium painter and teacher. Recurring symbols and motifs show up in her work such as houses, trees, plants, birds and natural elements. Often she is drawn to her studio by an idea or agenda that needs to express itself only to find that the process takes over and intuition leads the way. Presently Mo is exploring block-printing on fabric as well as working on an ongoing longer printmaking project called The 100 Houses Project. In Mo’s 100 Houses Project she explores the house as symbol for expressing the changes humans experience in their lifetimes. Mo has lived in many communities across BC including Summerland, Malcolm Island, Victoria, Castlegar, and Terrace, but now she resides in Prince George. The creation of art has provided consistency through the transitions she has made in both time and place, in soul and in heart, as a child, woman, partner, and mother. Her creations can be found in galleries and private collections throughout BC.
