Online registration is now available for the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Studio School. Subjects include pottery, printmaking, design, photography, art history and painting, and spring classes begin next week, so some spaces may be filled but I wanted to direct your attention to several May workshops. One involves vat-dyeing techniques for shibori, Japanese tie-dye. According to the Museum's description, participants complete a long length (or two or three) of cotton. If participating, I'd opt to use my fabric for pillows. There's also a paper-bead-making workshop and an Indian block-printing class (just know the latter only takes place during the week, mid-day, not at night or on the weekend). Details here.

BTW, older teens ages 16 and up are welcome too.
