Natural Tie-Dyeing Workshop

  • Dates:08/12/2017
  • Time:1pm-3pm
  • Ages:all ages
  • Cost:$55 general / $45 members and students
  • Website:http://madmuseum.org

Barrie Cohen of Beezie Textiles returns to the Museum to teach the traditional Japanese techniques of Shibori tie-dyeing with indigo, using onion skins and cochineal as additional sources of color. For the workshop, which was inspired by MAD’s current exhibition Counter-Couture: Handmade Fashion in an American Counterculture, guests may either use the fabrics provided or bring their own small items (tea towels, t-shirts) to dye.

Barrie Cohen is a textile artist originally from New York, who spent several years traveling and working on organic vegetable farms. During that time, she began studying different uses for plants, dabbling in making her own herbal remedies and dyes for her old white clothes. When she moved back to New York, she continued exploring color: gathering flowers from local markets and foraging while hiking on weekends. Repurposing fabrics as much as she can, Cohen spends most of her time playing with natural color and sewing fabric together.

Artist-in-residence Tai Hwa Goh uses paper and printmaking to create incredible installations influenced by the natural world. Join Goh for this drop-in workshop, where visitors will assist the artist in creating an installation inspired by the architecture at MAD. Visitors will create rubbings from found objects, use stamps to create patterns on paper, and print out decals, culminating in a group project that takes over part of the Education Department’s classroom.

MADmakes is a drop-in, hands-on series where visitors can test their skills at art making and creative production. Led by current artists-in-residence, MADmakes offers visitors the opportunity to better understand and appreciate the workmanship that goes into contemporary studio practice today.

MAD's Studio Sundays are hands-on workshops for the entire family and focus on the physicality of “making” and the sensual and tactile qualities of materials. Participants of the workshops take an in-depth look at different materials—from fiber, to clay, paper and every day products—as an art medium and explore how to incorporate them into sculptural art works.

Using Columbus Circle and the art work in the museum as the starting point to tell a story, each person proposes and creates an object that conveys personal narrative content and style.
