Elements in Fabric

How do you create the four elements in fabric? How do you make earth, wind, fire and water so vivid they leap off the surface? In this class, you will gain a greater understanding of design principles as you work with a wide variety of techniques and products to thoroughly explore the possibilities open to us today. Linda will show you how to create water with fabric paints, painted melted cellophane, sheer fabrics and melted fibers. Then, let the wind carry you up into the sky to make storm clouds and lightning with batting and sheers, fabric paints, Angelina fibers and bobbin work. Next, you will feel the fire with Tintzl, shredded sheer fabrics, Bonding Agent 007, foil, fabric paints and markers. Finally, come back to earth to learn to make Puff Paint, mica chip and Tyvek rocks and Fiber Etch trees. You will experiment with paint sticks, metallic paint powders and more. This class takes you from where you are to someplace else. Extra week after Lesson Two. Level: Intermediate to advanced.
