This workshop begins with an exploration of easy ways to create a great stash of original materials, in paper and fabric, to use in a collage piece that will be primarily fabric. Techniques like painting and printing using different mediums and styles will be covered.
Once you’ve built your project stash with inspirational pieces to choose from, you will begin your collage after studying a variety of options for your compostion. Next comes the embellishment with the application of amazing hand stitching. The main components of this workshop are surface design techniques, color and design, and hand stitching without a hoop to enhance your work. All skill levels are welcome.
