On September 19, Lesley Riley will be teaching two classes at the museum. The first class is called Fragment Fabric Collage. This class is for anyone who loves fabric, collage or color. Using a variety of fabric scraps (your own or the class stash), you will combine color and texture, motif and scale to create mood, memories, and magic. Learn the secrets of how to make even the ugliest fabric sing! You’ll gather even more ideas and inspiration from the oodles of samples Lesley brings. All Fragments will be temporarily fused in class in preparation for optional machine or hand-stitching (to your heart’s desire) at home. You will learn how to use TAP Transfer Artist Paper to get images on your fabric and words in your work. Your kit fee includes 3 computer printed images and quotes for you to use on your collage. After this class, you will never look at fabric the same way again.
The second class is called Fragment Fabric Book. This class is a no-sew, fabric-based exploration of fabric, image, and text as it applies to book page design and bookmaking. Explore transferring image and text onto fabric with TAP Transfer Artist Paper. Using your newly created fabric text and images, you will build a series of small collages from fabric and paper fragments, combining texture, text, and textiles. Bring any fabric scraps you may want to use or share. By the end of class, your Fragments will be combined into an easy to create book structure, a sensuous, one-of-a-kind, a hand-crafted compendium of color, image, texture, and text.
These classes are capped at 20 people. Tickets are $45.00 each.
