Have you ever struggled on a project because you couldn’t find “the perfect fabric?” If you are a fiber driven artist you know that finding just the right material for a project is essential to your creative success. Join Judy and learn to alter your own cloth to design and create original fabrics for your fiber art projects. Students will learn to create unique material for their own artwork designs and to adapt drab fabrics and trims for future cloth journals, quilts, art dolls and artistic imaginative projects.
This is a technique driven workshop full of detailed instructions for a plethora of methods using paint, dye, ink, stamps, paint sticks, fusible webbing, Angelina fibers, water soluble oil pastels, Tyvek and more. Our focus is free play with direction! Suggested base materials include cotton, silk, rayon, tulle, cheese cloth, organdy, velvet, lace and miscellaneous fibers.
At the completion of this workshop students will have an assortment of one-of-a-kind fabrics to use for their favorite fiber art applications as well as some that may inspire new ideas all together!
