Exhibition-Related Workshops 

Elisabeth Kley: Minutes of Sand 

Reflecting the depth of her curiosity and the richness of the sources that inspire her, the decorated surfaces and printed patterns in Elisabeth Kley’s work radiate joy, opulence, and the human experience. Participants will tour Elisabeth Kley: Minutes of Sand and then head to the studio to screenprint their own original designs onto tote bags or paper using shape screens and monoprinting techniques. 

 $10 per person 


Hard/Cover: Moonlight and Marbling 

FWM invited contemporary ceramics artists to work collaboratively with our studio staff to experiment with the screenprinting process. These collaborations sparked new discoveries for the artists and for all of us at FWM. Workshop participants will tour the exhibition and then create their own printed tote bags using experimental techniques inspired by our Hard/Cover artists!

Screenprinting Process Workshops: 

Empty Screen, Open Heart 

FWM would like to offer the opportunity for visitors to utilize screen printing techniques using an empty screen. This process is ideal for expressing personal messages and singular ideas. Groups of 10 or less can learn from FWM staff how to use transfer techniques, mono printing, and paper cut stencils to imagine their own design. Each participant will leave with one printed tote bag and multiple paper prints. 

 $10 per person 


Print and Process at The Fabric Workshop and Museum 

How do different artists deepen our understanding of the world around us? How do they collaborate with FWM to design and create works using innovative technology and traditional techniques? Our museum educators will lead you on a tour of the galleries and the studios, providing a sneak peek at the in-process work for upcoming exhibitions and how an artist’s ideas develop and change through collaboration and experimentation. Visitors will also tour FWM’s professional print studio, learn about the screenprinting process, and create their own screenprinted project inspired by our current artists in residence. 

$10 per person
