Come with me on this exploration of the magic that is the West. Indigo and lace, mountains and plains; the West is a place of expansive beauty, courageous grit, and wild in spirit. In this textile collage book we will capture and celebrate the spirt of the west.
I love creating textile books that tell stories through collage, imagery, stitch and texture. In this 2 day workshop we will explore image transfer techniques, have fun drawing and painting on fabric (I have some tools that eliminate the fear), layer, stitch and embellish to create a story of the west.
Layering is the magical component that brings a collage to life, adds depth, emotion and allows it to tell our story. However, layering does not always come easily. We will explore the concepts of layering: both visual layers and physical layers. We will have a crash course in collage design and composition with a focus on exactly what makes a great collage.
This class is textile based and will include a little stitching but artists in all mediums are welcome to play, explore and create with us. We will conquer any stitching fears you have.
Supply fee: $30 paid to instructor at beginning of class includes everything you need.
Bring any western themed items you would like to include.
