      10:00 am-5:00 pm, 1 hour break for provided lunch

      Let’s play with clay ... and get stamping! We will create wonderful stamps using polymer clay and different mark-making tools, creating a collection of your own stamp designs. And then, using a blend of acrylic inks and mediums, we will print the patterns onto cotton fabric and/or paper, creating a stash of your images in a wide variety of colorways. These prints will be stitched upon and collaged onto a backing fabric. Libby’s preference is to use free-motion machine stitching, but this process will also be beautiful with easy hand embroidery. And if you’d prefer to skip sewing altogether, Libby will share how this process works beautifully on paper! You can choose to make wonderful paper collages with your stamps, adding details with a variety of ink pens. Your class kit — a $35 fee paid directly to the instructor the morning of class — includes everything you need: clay, fabric for printing, canvas for backgrounds, paper, paint and ink, mark-making tools, brushes, inspirational designs and patterns... and of course there will plenty of chocolate!

      About the Instructor: Growing up with creative, artsy parents, Libby Williamson’s childhood was a world of fabric scraps and yarn, pins and needles, paint, Elmer’s Glue, and a whole lot of Scotch Tape. As an art major in college, Libby focused on the classic techniques of printmaking but still found time for knitting and fiber arts projects. The Blue Denim Design, Villa Park, CA artist’ printmaking background led to a passion in surface design on fabric, which her current work reflects. Published in Quilting Arts (and a former cover artist!), Libby is known for her art quilts using layers of hand-painted and dyed fabrics, appliquéd layers of free-motion stitched components and embedded found objects.
