Let’s play with all sorts of hand stitches and bits of fabric while we create textile collage scrolls that are wound on vintage wood spools! Your scroll can be a color exploration, feature a theme such as nature, or showcase memories as you incorporate little bits from your life. This class is beginner friendly: you will learn a variety of simple hand stitches that create big impact! We will review basic collage layering techniques and composition. Your class kit — a $15 fee paid directly to the instructor the morning of class — includes a base kit of vintage spool and prepared base fabric as well as additional fabrics and use of WonderFil Specialty Threads.
Student Supply List
• Fabric: just about any fabric scraps will work. Bring a selection in colors you want to play with. (Do not bring more fabric scraps than what would fit in a gallon-sized food storage bag. We will only spend 30 minutes collaging fabrics, so less is better.
• Thread: colors to complement and contrast with your fabric colors. Bring an assortment of sizes in: Perle cotton, embroidery floss, sewing thread.
• Basic hand sewing kit:, small scissors, thimble, readers and needle threader if you use them, and anything you love to have on hand when hand stitching.
