    This spring, The Fabric Workshop and Museum presents "Surface Forms," an exhibition showcasing silkscreened yardage designs created through the Museum’s acclaimed Apprentice Training Program. The program, established at the organization’s founding in 1977, is a vital part of FWM’s continued educational commitment.

    "Surface Forms" includes a selection of printed textiles made during the past three years of the program, and demonstrates the variety of possibilities and the expressive qualities of the medium. The exhibition presents dozens of original designs ranging in color, style, and subject matter.

    Over 1,600 local high school students and college, graduate, and post-graduate students from the United States and abroad have participated in the program since its inception. During their time at FWM, the artists explore the medium of screen-printing on fabric to expand their studio practice or prepare for future careers as designers.
