Putting it all together...

returns to Fibreworks Kingston Weekend Workshops Series

Lets be creative!

Do you ever wonder what to do with your many samples from different workshops, fabric scraps, lace, eco-dyed silk, wool, beads, metal finds? You will work closely with Gordana over this weekend of stitch and design play to develop the plans to create all new work as you "put it all together". Your work may be collaged onto black felt while planning  one special dimensional piece, or you might consider mounting your design stretched onto a frame… 
Bits and pieces of Gordana's work
There are so many options this dynamic artist uses in her own prize-winning art that will be shared during this fun-filled, design focused workshop. Time to explore, plan, sketch, dream and stitch!!! Make time to play and build new pieces for your stash of favourite techniques.

Techniques that will be explored by Gordana with her students during the workshop include:
* Free motion machine and hand stitching, 
* Stitching and burning felt,
* Stamping, wax resist printing, 
* Stitching onto water soluble film, 
* Painting Stitch-witchery, 
* Mono-printing on fabric, 
* Use of gold foil, 
* Drawing and stitching on the muslin…

The workshop will be held in Room 00060 from 9:30-4 pm Saturday and Sunday September 19th and 20th at St. Lawrence College.
