TEXTILE ART – SHEER PLAY
Tutor: JEANNETTE DENICOLIS MEYER
Discover the design and colour world which opens up while composing quilts or fabric collages with layers of luscious silk organza and crisp cotton organdy. We will begin by producing a gem-like palette of translucent fabric with water-based paints and then proceed to the design wall, where new colors and shapes will emerge as the translucent fabrics are layered. We will also produce a technique sampler notebook as we explore the design possibilities different finished and raw edges provide. We’ll experiment with traditional Korean pojagi seams, various fusing methods, and a number of other construction and decorative techniques. Design options will expand with discussions of ways to incorporate surface stitchery, printed imagery, and opaque fabrics into your fabric compositions.
