Extreme Textural Surfaces
Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts
May 30-June 5, 2010
This workshop is designed to produce extremely interesting textural surfaces by manipulating fabric, paper and other substrates. During the workshop we will experiment with some if not all of the following items:
Techniques in layering, embroidery, heat distressing, collage, digital printing and alternative bookmaking will be taught. We will look at uncommon ways to use surfaces, with exercises that stretch beyond where we have been before. Each participant will bring their special style to the surfaces created.
During the workshop we will explore the use of digital prints on fabric and specialy papers to be used in layers of textural fabric. You will learn how to print on fabric to be used in your various projects. We will print student images on a 4” x 6” printer during the workshop.
The materials presented in this workshop will encourage participants to come up with their interpretation of the ideas. Some sewing techniques will be used and sewing machines are helpful. For some of the textures we will combine machine and hand work.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
