Event Description

This workshop will explore three fibre techniques in connection to mapping. These include basic hand sewing skills, using thread to create structure on dissolvable fabric, and using scissors to remove parts of a patterned fabric to make a new surface. Students will learn these techniques through the creation of samplers with contemporary fibre art maps used as an inspiration. Students are asked to bring with them one used, stained piece of fabric that they can tell a story about, and a pair of fabric scissors (some fabric samples are available at the school). The rest of the materials (thread, needles, embroidery hoops, dissolvable fabric, patterned fabric and fabric pens) will be provided. At the end of this workshop, students will have learned to integrate fibre art techniques with concepts of mapping and will leave with three examples of work.
