Please mark your calendar and plan to join us for GORDANA BRELIH's workshop September 18-20th, 2015 in Kingston...

Putting it all together...
Gordana Belih, Instructor
returns to Fibreworks Kingston Weekend Workshops Series
September 18-20, 2015

Lets be creative!

Do you ever wonder what to do with your many samples from different workshops, fabric scraps, lace, eco-dyed silk, wool, beads, metal finds? You will work closely with Gordana over this weekend of stitch and design play to develop the plans to create all new work as you "put it all together". Your work may be collaged onto black felt while planning  one special dimensional piece, or you might consider mounting your design stretched onto a frame… 
Bits and pieces of Gordana's work
There are so many options this dynamic artist uses in her own prize-winning art that will be shared during this fun-filled, design focused workshop. Time to explore, plan, sketch, dream and stitch!!! Make time to play and build new pieces for your stash of favourite techniques.
