Vibrant Color workshop in Newark

I had a great time teaching in Newark last weekend.  The class focused on combining soy wax and MX dyes. It's a tough class to take on the road, but I had lots of help there with the prep and set-up. The class was held at the Newark Museum.  Unfortunately, I didn't have time to see anything there but the classroom!

Participants experimented with three techniques, soy wax dye crayons, hot wax combined with dye and soy wax dye paste.

  1. Some very beautiful pieces, Lisa. Looks like your participants had a great time. That does look like a hard workshop to take on the road! I'm glad it went well.
