Fabric is Paint
May 4 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Let’s make some trees and mountains from Aunt Ida’s Drapes! Join Pam Collins for this fun and creative class and create your own masterpiece by learning to use fabric and notions in a unique way.
Learn how to cut or tear fabric and glue it onto a canvas to create a landscape or seascape. Pam will walk you through the whole process. You will discover how to use gauze to make clouds, corduroy to form rocks and delicate lace to make sea foam. Taffeta can be transformed into water or skies. It is a simple process of using scissors and glue, but the challenge is making a textile transform into a three-dimensional looking piece of art. Good imaginations are needed., and/or a willingness to explore. Anyone can learn this. No experience is needed. You will never see fabric the same way again.
You will work on an 11 x 14 canvas and all materials will be supplied. You will leave with a finished piece of art!
You only need to bring a scissors for cutting fabric.
