Turn your ART into a TEXTILE

If you've ever wanted to see your art on someone's back, here's an opportunity to learn how to design a textile print using paper, pencil and paint.

Emma Howard, a Kailua-based textile designer, will teach a small group a step-by-step approach, from drawing to finished art, 5 to 8 p.m. June 19 and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. June 20 and 21 at a Chinatown studio. Participants will walk away with color chips on a presentation board that can be printed industrially overseas.

Howard has designed textiles for Kahala, TheBus, Dole Plantation and Reyn Spooner, to name just a few.

Students will also hear Dale Hope, author of "The Aloha Shirt: Spirit of the Islands" speak about Hawai'i's apparel industry.

Cost: $250. To register, contact Emma Howard at 692-6727 or
