It's that time again! Registration is open and I'm in need for a few curious people to sign up for fibers classes at Fleisher. I'm offering Shibori in the am 10-1 and Stitch and Surface in the afternoon 1-4 the week of August 5th-9th. In Shibori, we'll learn a variety of resist techniques to get pattern and color on fiber, including pole-wrapping, clamping, stitching, and pleating. You'll become familiar with working with fiber reactive dyes, and you can work on cloth or on clothing blanks.
In Stitch and Surface you'll be introduced to freehand embroidery techniques, sunprinting, and mixed media fiber collage. Projects will include a doodle sampler, an embellished sunprint, and an embroidery inspired by botanical prints. Or feel free to use it as open studio time to work on that embroidery project you've been stuck on.
This blog will be an effort to document my thoughts and experiences in studio work, art criticism, and community education in the areas of fibers, color theory, screenprinting, and art education. Please respect my work and link back to me if you use any images and feel free to comment. I am a fiber artist from Philadelphia, teaching at Fleisher Art Memorial, and have recently completed my Masters of Art Education at Tyler School of Art, Temple University.
