Ready to make some magic? Learn to create beautiful thread art by machine-sewing collaged materials into water-soluble fabric. Once the stitching is complete, the fabric is dissolved away, leaving behind a firm, structured “thread drawing.” Your finished piece of art can look as delicate as a spider web or as opaque as stained glass, and can be hung on the wall or used as the basis of other mixed media art. Longer pieces can be worn as a scarf, smaller pieces can be made into a cuff or brooch.
STUDENTS MUST BRING A SEWING MACHINE, a few bobbins and some needles. Students must also know basic machine stitching, how to thread the machine and change the bobbin. Instructor will provide all other materials but
students are welcome to bring treasured bits of fabric, ribbon, beads, and other ephemera to include in their thread collage.
Date: Saturday 11/17
Age range: 13 & up
