Summer Classes: Surface Design

There are several spaces left in my "Surface Design for Quilters and Fibre Artists" class at the Haliburton School of the Arts, July 30 - August 3, 2012. Haliburton is about two hours north of Toronto, in cottage country. 

Discover and use many exciting surface design treatments to make original pieces of fibre art or to add depth, dimension and detail to your textile work and art quilts. You will be introduced to the properties and uses of Prismacolor Artist Pencils, Caran d'Ache Neocolour II Water Soluble Wax Pastels, Shiva Paintstiks, Tsukineko Inks, and Foils. Instruction will include demonstrations and a variety of samples will be available for reference. There will be ample time to experiment and create a small work.

This is an extended version of my one-day Surface Design class. Two of my students who took the one-day class in Barrie suggested a week-long class and have signed up for the week-long class because they felt there was enough material in the class to work with for an entire week.  You will have time to try all of the methods in depth.  The supply list is quite small as I bring all the products and charge a $25.00 supply fee.
Learn to design and cut your own stencils for use with Paintstiks, foils and inks.

Above are examples of many of the topics we will cover in class.  Come and try all these methods without investing in many expensive materials.  Take your art quilts and fibre art to a new level.
