The Unpredictable Life of a Piece of Cloth
Wednesday, June 24, 6:30 p.m.

The Contemporary Textile Studio welcomes the renowned UK artist Kate Blee for a 3-day public workshop at our studio and an artist's talk on Wednesday, June 24, at the Textile Museum of Canada, 55 Centre Ave. Toronto. Kate’s workshop will focus on discovering colour relationships through a spontaneous, reflective and playful process.  Using dyes mixed to a variety of viscosities, and exploring unorthodox methods of applying dye or pigment to textile, students will discover a personal and experimental process of working, a greater understanding of the nature of cloth in relation to dye and an appreciation of imperfections and anomalies as they arise.
