Surface Design and Stitch
Date(s): 7/21/2014 - 7/28/2014
This full week course in our Textile Design Program will prepare the diploma program participant or general interest student to create their own original hand coloured and stitched textile projects. The course is for anyone who has ever wanted to step out of the box, leave the familiar and perhaps traditional behind and create one of a kind quilts or embroidery while learning the foundations of design, stitch, pattern development and finishing of quilts, home décor, wearables or wall art.
Students will explore color, support their knowledge of design principles and build all new work while spending time in the classroom divided between working into a sketchbook with art and design techniques. Printing, painting, dye work, collage, and stitch work are all a part of the fun! Students will create hand made cloth, samples or several large pieces with special effects on fabrics. The planning and successful execution of original small quilts or stitched fabrics using a wide variety of new techniques is the goal. Students are encouraged to complete several small classroom projects which are stitched by hand or machine, framed/bound and ready to enjoy.
A material fee of $40.00 to cover the cost of paints and dyes, some tools and fabrics/threads for small class samples is payable to the instructor on the first day.
Come join in on the fun... the community of textile arts friends is a great place to learn and grow!
