Too Cool for Spool with Seth Apter
Sunday, August 18, 2019
10:00 am - 4:30 pm, ½ hour lunch break
Using wooden, sewing spools as a base, you will paint, ink, stamp, mark make, stitch, and ultimately wind your way to mixed media mayhem! This workshop will focus on surface design, with an emphasis on creating loosely and without overthinking. Class begins by hand-stitching together your choice of paper and fabric to create long strands to work over. Following this, learn mixed media techniques as you create and apply a unique design, filled edge-to-edge and end-to-end with your favorite colors, personal symbols, and both hand-drawn and stamped marks. Students will each complete multiple spools, allowing for many different display options — both free-standing and hung. Spools will be provided but you are asked to bring your own paper, fabric and thread to further personalize your creation.
