This class scheduled to begin on June 21st, 2013
Susan Sorrell's Fabric Collage workshop is developed from the tradition of quilting and adding the creativity of art.
Taking scraps of fabric, applique, threads, beads and embellishments to open up a whole new world of possibilities for self expression. Fabric collage can lend itself to be abstract, naive, complex or childlike. Designs can come from popular culture, sayings, songs, or stories.
This workshop is for all levels, and no sewing machine is required. Fabrics can be used clothing or bought from a store. Needle and thread are used like drawing tools to add details and color to a piece. Beads and embellishments make the piece glimmer and three-dimensional. There is no right or wrong way to do it, be experimental and make it as complex or easy as you wish. Think of it as a miniature quilt that has had a "glamour" make over!!! The funkier...the better! You don't need any sewing skills; this is about expressing yourself with cloth!!!
