Students will use scraps of various colored fabrics to create unique designs. This is a good beginners’ class for students who have wanted to try their hand at fabric “painting” (i.e. Painting with fabric). You will trace or draw a design that interests you. I will have a few to choose from that you can use or just freestyle onto a precut cloth of muslin. Once drawn, you will enjoy filling in the lines with your own colors. You will learn cutting techniques; discuss color combinations, possible finishing techniques, and framing options. Each week, you will have the option to start a new project design or continue on one that you started. A class outline and supply list will be provided before class. Note: No sewing machine required, but you may decide to quilt it at home.
16” x 22” Foam board/felt/pins (Use 1 “thick insulation foam. Cover with white or light felt and pin to sides.) I have a limited supply you can buy from the teacher for $10 during class. Otherwise, please bring it ready to use.
Sketch pad (at least 11 x 71/2”)
Drawing pencil or pen
Pkg of 6 color pens
1 fine point sharpie
6” blue handle Karen Buckley scissors (or similar)
*If you can’t find them in fabric/quilt stores they are on Amazon
Small paper scissors
Fabric glue (Alena’s white glue works well. The clear is too thin.)
Plus: There will be additional fabrics to buy for each class depending on individual preferences and themes. This will be discussed during class.
JOY CARTER: INSTRUCTOR PROFILE
I am an experimenter of all things art! Painting, mixed media and quilting are my favorites, so it was natural for me to combine those arts into what I call “Collage Fabric Painting”. I recently retired from a career of teaching all ages various subjects. I am now excited for the opportunity to use both my skills as a teacher and an artist to introduce others to this fun way of experimenting.
