Fabric Collage      Cheryl Miller

Saturday, March 2
10:30am – 4pm
Tuition: $68  Materials: $15 (all inclusive)

Using hand dyed cottons and batiks we will explore an improvisational approach to making fabric collages using a raw edge machine applique technique.  We may also incorporate handmade papers or vintage elements into our compositions.  This class will require students to bring their own sewing machine with a basic working knowledge of how to use it.  We will be stitching through multiple layers of fabric and paper to create small collages that can be framed or incorporated into larger mixed media pieces.    Students will have time to experiment and complete at least one matted 4 x 6” collage suitable for framing.

Students will need to bring their own sewing machine and fabric scissors.  Students may bring any fabrics and threads of their own if they wish but there will be plenty provided by the instructor.
