Fashion Stamping and Stencilling Workshop

CHSS Fashion students recently had the opportunity to participate in a 2 day stamping and stencilling workshop using natural dyes, with local fashion artist Jennifer Triemstra-Johnston.  During her career Jennifer has worked as a costume designer at the Blyth Festival, she is a small business owner, fashion workshop leader, and currently teaches part time at York University.  Thanks to a small project grant from the Foundation for Education Perth Huron, students learned about the history of fabric dyeing, natural dyes, sustainability and mordants.  They were able to stencil or stamp their own personal designs onto fabric and choose from a variety of natural dyes to create unique projects.
