John Marshall will be bringing this unique method of clamping to Canandaigua this summer!

Students will be using John’s intricately carved blocks, as well as carving their own, to orchestrate a symphony of color through clamp resist techniques.

A series of corks and plugs are used in tandem with the blocks as selected silks, hemps, and cottons are repeatedly dipped in vats of natural dyes, yielding a range of splendid colors and serendipitous combinations.
