Three Techniques for Fabric Surface Design

This fun and productive class will feature demonstration and instruction in methods to enhance quilts, home and garment textiles. The teacher will have samples of finished work. Class participants will complete examples of each technique.

Glue Resist Fabric Painting

Draw with water soluble glue on your fabric for this process which is much like batik. The glue is allowed to set before you paint the fabric. As the glue requires 24 hours to set, glue prepared pieces in different designs will be available for participants to paint.

Alphabet Stickers and Fabric Paint

An easy way to add text to your textiles! We will use scrapbooking stickers and textile paint to make your pieces communicate.

Really Reusable Silk Screening

This unique technique of creating silk screens is my favorite for surface design and for printing on paper. With Really Reusable Silk Screens, participants will create small organza silk screens with only a few materials. The screens can be used repeatedly if they are gently washed and dried between print sessions. One of my favorite little screens has made about 200 clear images and is still is great shape!
