www.kerrgrabowski.comKerr is a textile artist. I met her years ago at Peter’s Valley, where she was running the fibers area.
Partly because she has a lot of knowledge and partly because she knows the rules—when to break them and how to break them—I knew she’d be an excellent addition to the WSW lineup. I am thrilled she’s able to come share her skills with us.

Do your pieces present a visual tug of war, no particular entrance or direction? Gain visual focus as Kerr leads you in a series of exercises to develop your critical awareness of design. The first two days, create small collages based on repetition, scale or color. The following three days, work on a series of small fabric or paper pieces as you develop your ideas using various methods of dye application and mark-making using screenprinting (deconstructed, a technique Kerr developed using dyes dried in the screen mesh as a slowly disintegrating stencil as well as more traditional techniques) and direct dye painting, along with charcoal, pastels, graphite and other mark-making materials. The techniques shown are geared towards fabric but are appropriate for work on paper also.
