Artistic Artifacts is thrilled to present an all new, hybrid Live / Online workshop offered via private Facebook group with Gwen Lafleur!
Do you love fabric, paper, and new spins on tried and true techniques? If so, get ready to Wrap & Roll your way to handmade embellishments and focal elements, some of which will double as out-of-the-box (or in the tube!) art journals. We'll be creating a variety of small projects that can be used on their own or brought together for a larger, unique piece of rollable artwork that you can personalize with colors, supplies, and techniques to express your individual style. In our pre-class video we'll discuss and demo several different ideas for wrapped elements in your project, including painted and embellished test tubes and other fun alternatives. Gwen will also share her process and ideas for creating stitched and embellished mini collages using both paper and fabric, and demonstrate how she made the outside/base for the main piece that will be the foundation for the larger project. We'll also chat about options for using paper instead of fabric if that's your preference.
During the live portion of the class, held on Saturday, October 23, 2021 from 1:00 –3:30pm Eastern time
