Print, Stitch, Make: Fiber Arts Objects

ID : 10924   
« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Learn to print your own imagery onto fabric, embellish it with stitching and embroidery, then create objects with your embellished fabric. You may choose to create a whirligig vessel, Japanese style bag, historical tie-on pocket, wrist cuff, or a fabric book.


Jody will begin with inspirational slides of current artists working in these media, discuss objects that can be made, and will demonstrate stencil and block carving, as well as printing. You may use your own imagery, or work from images provided in class, and learn how to simplify the imagery to create stencils and carved blocks for printing. You will learn embroidery and mending stitches to add depth and layering to your printed cloth, which will then be used to create your choice of objects (listed above). All items can be hand-stitched.

There will be plenty of time for practice and exploration, and depending on the size of the project more than one object may be completed to create a line of coordinated items.

Your materials fee includes fabric and printing supplies and materials. View additional class information, including a list of required tools, equipment, and supplies.
