Lisa Foti-Straus

Hand Painting on Fabric Workshop



Lisa first felt the hand-painting vibe while working on some fabric designs a few years back and just kept on going! Lots of jumpsuits, baby onesies and many a wild legging later, she will be helping us to experiment with different ways of applying water based fabric paint to clothing. Colors and brushes will be provided as well as a choice of canvas: leggings, or a large scarf. If you possess items of your own that you'd like to paint please bring them as well.

The process is easy and toxin-free and a free flowing joy! No need for prior experience! Inspiring music will be involved as well!

$35.00, limited to 10 people. Please call the shop (415) 552-0112 to register or email

Lisa thinks of Gravel & Gold as a play box for ideas. She organizes our events and workshops, inviting a constant stream of artists and characters into our space. At times this crosses into her ambiguous film life. She is finishing up a documentary with the musician Michael Hurley, her dear friend Susannah Morse, Mr. Drew Christie. You’re probably in it.
