Botanical printing– also known as eco-printing– has a large and dedicated following. The sustainability of materials and inherent organic beauty of the imagery is deliciously appealing. But consider a new twist on beloved printing methods. This workshop explores ten additions to botanical printing on paper/fabric substrates to create a series of collages suitable for framing, stitch, or other distinctive and personal use. Techniques include adding color or collage elements prior to printing, the use of a variety of mordants and chemical applications to enhance and shift color. Dunnewold’s unique methods for adding new and unexpected additions to the eco-printing repertoire are not for the faint hearted. It’s just too exciting!   Location: La Pointe, Wisconsin Instructor: Jane Dunnewold, janedunnewold.com Cost: $865 + Materials: $30 Sponsor: Madeline Island School of the ArtsWebsite, email, (715) 747-2054

In this workshop, you will first learn how to paint images with Procion dyes on cotton. Among other things, we will cover blending, layering, special effects and painting without bleeding. These techniques can be used to create images as complex as portraits or as simple as a line. Each student is asked to bring two or three 18" x 20" designs or drawings that they will transfer onto cloth and then paint. Then, we will explore how to use quilting to enhance the look of your painted cloth. The main objective is to use quilting lines to create depth, texture, tension, or shadowing which will give a new dimension and add visual interest to your quilt. Quilting experience required.   Location: La Pointe, Wisconsin Instructor: Hollis Chatelain, hollisart.com Cost: $870 + Materials: $50 Sponsor: Madeline Island School of the ArtsWebsite, email, (715) 747-2054

As a teacher, my goal is to see the lightbulbs come on when students realize that painting isn’t as mysterious as it seems. Of course, it’s still challenging—which is part of the fun—but the visual language is something that I believe we all can learn. In my workshops, I try to teach shortcuts that allow students to make leaps in their understanding of this visual language and how to avoid many of the common pitfalls of painting, such as inaccurate perspective, mixing colors poorly, and getting restrained by the details of a scene. With the big shapes planned and an accurate drawing established, it’s easier to loosen up and enjoy fluid washes, expressive brushwork, and bold color.   Location: La Pointe, Wisconsin Instructor: Dan Mondloch Cost: $700 Sponsor: Madeline Island School of the ArtsWebsite, email, (715) 747-2054

“Where do you get your ideas?” is a question I am often asked. This class has some of the answers. I designed it to teach some of my techniques along with some of my ways of finding and using source material in my own work. I think about it as my Ways and Means class. My idea is to create assignments that will be fun and straightforward, yet can lead to infinitely complex and artistic statements if students want to pursue them further. Using my clear, simple exercises, quilters will learn techniques they can apply as they wish to any quilt project they undertake.   Location: La Pointe, Wisconsin Instructor: Joe Cunningham, www.joethequilter.com Cost: $870 Sponsor: Madeline Island School of the ArtsWebsite, email, (715) 747-2054
