Introduction
Art Quill Studio in Arcadia Vale, NSW will be holding a series of workshops during 2017 tutored by Marie-Therese Wisniowski. The workshops have been structured so that they can be attended as individual workshops or as an on-going series. The workshop program will start with basic printmaking techniques and advance to mastering complex multiple imaging/overprinting relationships and techniques. The techniques are suitable for printing on fabric and paper substrates.

Today's post highlights the 2017 Art Quill workshop program and gives links to workshops so that you can view past students outcomes. For Australian enquiries please email me at Marie-Therese. For overseas enquires these workshops may be held in overseas venues provided that there are enough participants per workshop (10-15 participants) and that within each country a sufficient number of workshops can be organized in order to make the journey cost-effective (5-10 workshops). Please email me at Marie-Therese to initiate a discussion on the feasibility of such an overseas venture.

In person Master Classes are also available. For more details on these Master Classes email me at Marie-Therese. For Master Class outcomes employing my signature MSDS Disperse Dye and Transfer Printing technique see - Barbara Scott. Online classes will also be available in 2017.

Barbara Scott's sublimated print on fabric incorporating texture studies was part of her Master Class program.
