2011 Maiwa Textile Symposium Workshop
Wendy Huhn
(Maiwa East - 1310 Odlum Dr.)
$450 (Includes $90 Lab Fee - and a screen which students will keep)
Four full days - Class Limit 14  
September 8 - 11 (Thu - Sun) 10am - 4pm

Join Oregon-based silk screen artist Wendy Huhn for four days of in-depth instruction. The focus of this hands-on workshop will be threefold: to introduce screen printing, to master the use of photo emulsion for image creation, and to take the unknown elements out of screen printing.

In addition the workshop will cover such techniques as direct wax, screen filler, and contact paper stencils. The various media that may be used with screen printing include textile paints, thickened dyes, discharge pastes, bleach pastes, puff extender, and foils.

Other subjects that will be invaluable to the budding screen printer are studio safety and methods for exposing your own screens in your own studio. The techniques will be taught step by step so that students gain a comfortable and competent understanding. There will be time to print, experiment, trouble-shoot, and play.

Wendy Huhn

was born in Phoenix, Arizona, and received her BFA from the University of Oregon in Eugene in 1980. She was the 2009 recipient of the Quilt Japan Award from the Nihon Vogue Corporation, Tokyo, Japan. In 2008 Huhn was awarded an Oregon Arts Commission grant. She currently lives and works in Dexter, Oregon.

Huhn’s work is included in numerous public and private collections, including the Museum of Art and Design, New York, Nihon Vogue, Tokyo, Japan, the Ardis and Robert James Collection of the International Quilt Study Center at the University of Nebraska, Sonny Kamm Collection, Los Angeles, California, and the George Stroemple Collection, Portland, Oregon.

Wendy works in textiles, collage, and mixed media. She superimposes
imagery onto painted and sanded canvas or onto small hand-embroidered
collages. Huhn has long been fascinated with various methods of
transferring images, designs, and patterns to cloth. She is an innovator and master of these techniques and has worked extensively with them over the last 28 years.
