remnants fabric collage class - join me!
One of the things that's been much on my mind this year is the topic of classes. I get asked frequently if I teach and my answer is always yes - and no.
I do teach. I'm happy to teach but my schedule is a beast and I can't always fit everything in that I'd like to. But I've been wanting to figure out a way to make it work so I'm taking steps toward that.
I'm really really really (I mean, really) excited to announce that I'll be teaching a new class called Remnant Fabric Collage. What in the world is that? So glad you asked - here's the info:
When: Sunday October 16, 2011
Where: The Hyatt Place (located in Livonia, MI - follow the link for complete directions)
Class fee: $85 (includes a box lunch and some class supplies)
Class description: Do you have bits of fabric you can't bare to throw away? How about an unfinished quilt project or one you just aren't feeling the love for anymore?
Use up your leftovers and give your unfinished and old projects new life by creating a fabric collage of them. In this class you will create a collage on a 10" canvas. You'll learn to create your background, take the plunge and cut up your unfinished or old quilt and add in embellishments. You can also use paper with this technique!
We'll explore the addition of surface design through screen printing and various ways that hand stitching can add texture and interest to your work.
This is a fabulous way to create freely and put all those remnants from your sewing room to work!
There's a couple of reasons its being held on a Sunday. (1) Because my full time day job keeps me pretty well occupied during the week and (2) I don't think there are enough art classes available to working folks on the weekends.
So there you have it. I know its a bit ahead into the future but it'll be here in no time at all. If you are interested in attending, you can contact me at FibraArtysta@earthlink.net
Hope to see you there!
