Collage with Fabric Workshop
Saturday, June 29th from 10am to 2pm
Hawthorne Arts Complex
13040 Cerise Ave in Hawthorne, CA
Explore the surrealist nature of collage by using fabric appliqué. Collage is a great way to experiment and take risks in making art. It simulates the freedom of working in a sketchbook, but once completed, it has the finesse of a completed piece. This technique can easily lend itself to abstract and pictorial imagery alike.
I will cover a variety of sewing techniques for appliqué, including:
Raw edge appliqué with invisible hand-stitching
Traditional folded edge appliqué with hemming stitch
Machine sewing with raw and folded edge
Using stencils for cutting shapes out of fabric
The primary material in this workshop will be reclaimed fabric scraps from a local fabric design company. If you would like to bring your own fabric scraps, please feel free to do so!
Objectives for the workshop:
Explore sewing techniques in applique
Play with different ways to create movement and rhythm in a composition
Understanding general color theory when working with patterned fabric
Awareness of the importance to reuse textiles
Class fee is $60 for this four-hour workshop, and includes all materials, tools, handouts and instruction.
BYO lunch. Water and snacks will be provided.
Limited seats available.
