PFI is pleased to announce a collaboration with one of the nation’s rising textile designers, Tricia Langman.  British-born Langman has designed for Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Halston and Donna Karan.

Her collections have been featured at Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of New York City.  She created a hand-painted designer gown for Celine Dion to wear at the Grammy’s.  Locally, she created a collection for Pendleton Home under the Tricia Langman label.

This summer, she brings her insights and teaching skills to PFI in three textile design weekend workshops:

– Hand painting and dyeing. Use dyeing techniques of the past to create scarfs and fabrics. Learn tie-dye and hand painting techniques, shibori, over-dyeing, rust dyeing, vegetable dyeing and batik.

– Fabric printing. Produce fabric samples, a length of fabric and create surface designs suitable for garments or home decor. Learn screen-printing, stenciling and devoré, Japanese katazome printing, block and mono printing techniques.

– Sculptural effects. Pleat, crinkle, drape, twist, fold and use sculptural effects and heat embossing to create sculpturally experimental fabrics. Open studio project: Students have the opportunity to explore further all the techniques they have learned over the past two weekends — screen-printing, shibori and batik — to produce a length of fabric or a decorative art piece.
