This workshop is for fiber artists of all levels who would like to experiment with new materials and techniques, or who want to add a new dimension to their work.
The class emphasizes the process involved in creating fabric and paper collages. You will be encouraged to work intuitively using a sewing machine, hand-stitching and acrylic medium, to build shapes, structure and texture into constructed canvases. Printed images will also be used to add dimension to your collages.
Students will work with painting, mono-printing, silk-screen, copy paper bonding, plus other techniques. These studies may become completed projects and/or works-in-progress. The class includes group discussions, Fran will provide plenty of individual attention and constructive critique.
Fran has a BA in Clothing Design from West Virginia University. Her 22+ years in art quilt making have evolved into stitched hard surface paper and fabric collages.
