Just updating you with more details about our feature tutor for this year Sue Wademan. Sue has graciously consented to teach for me in August, I am lucky here as Sue isn't teaching much anymore and may be moving overseas so this is a fantastic opportunity to take a fabulous class.
Have you been wanting to try something a little different using textiles. This class explores the many ways you can manipulate fabrics - in particular sheers (silk organza, georgette, chiffon etc) and synthetic fabrics - to create an individual fabric colage landscape. You only need to see some of Sue's artworks to see what possibilities you would have to create very individual and stunning pieces of art using textiles.
Whilst students of all levels can attend a knowledge of free motion stitching is a help.
The class is a 2 day design focussed workshop to create wonderful landscapes using a variety of synthetic and sheer fabrics to manipulate and texture your finished piece. Sue will teach the 5 elements of design - line, shape, tone, texture and glorious colour. Sue will start you off with a sample piece to learn her 'linear collage' technique then you will move onto creating your individual landscape using those elements and many fabric manipulation techniques that Sue will share with you.
The class is designed to develop your intuitive use of a variety of textiles and to allow you to gain confidence in using fabric like paint.
Why not step out of your comfort zone and try a class with a difference from a very well qualified tutor who has taught overseas and at NZ national quilt symposia. There are limited spaces available so be in quick.
