4 days workshop:
Wed July 21 - 10AM to 5PM (7 hrs)
Thu July 22 - 10AM to 5PM (7 hrs)
Fri July 23 - 10AM to 5PM (7 hrs)
Mon Aug 16 - 10AM to 2PM (4 hrs)
Create fabric pictures--landscape, still life, etc.--based on assigned snapshots that you bring to class. Pick your favorite photo and adapt it to fabric, using simple tools like photocopies and tracing paper. Then select fabrics that will bring the image to life.
Class includes lots of supportive information on simplifying the photo into a useable pattern. On the second day, we'll pick fabrics and the third day we'll focus on ways to construct the picture, including fusibles, raw edge appliqué and boro hand stitching. We'll gather again, after an interval of a few weeks, for a half day session to see results, share triumphs and ask questions.
This class will meet for 3 consecutive days (7/21-23), for 7 hours each day (10:00-5:00). Then it will take a 3 week hiatus and reconvene for 4 hours (10:00-2:00 ) on August 16.
Students will need to purchase some materials on their own and do some homework prior to the class. Details can be found here.
