Do you have a collection of scrap material piling up from past sewing projects? Have you been holding on to those left over remnants, you just don’t have the heart to throw away? Imagine utilizing those beautiful gems, left from some of your favorite materials, and pulling them all together to create a piece of artwork.
Join me for a day of fun and creativity as you create a mixed media piece with interesting scraps of fabric and material. In this all day workshop you will learn the importance of layering materials from larger scale to smaller to develop a sense of background and foreground. I will go over techniques on how to distress & age fabric. Gain an understanding on how to apply a sense of composition and color schemes to create cohesiveness and harmony. We will also add text, images and found objects as the final touches to the mixed media piece.
Materials provided: Art boards, acrylic medium, collage materials, acrylic paints, brushes, scissors, collection of different fabric & materials.
Materials you will need to bring: A good scissors sharp enough to cut fabric & interesting found objects (optional).
