Fiber Fulfills Art
Years ago, I fulfilled Laura Cater Woods, a college educated great musician who loves material. I discovered numerous points from Laura over the years, but one that I utilize constantly in my art is the consolidation of “fine art” products right into my fiber art. At the time I was also daunted to use Golden brand products such as matte medium, gesso, liquid polymers, and so on, as a result of course I really did not think of myself as a “fine” musician, but as a craftsman.
Well, times have actually transformed, as well as absolutely nothing terrifies me any longer. Well, except possibly piecing a patchwork that is bigger than 36″ x 36″ where the points need to match!
So, back to mediums. We can make use of matte tool as well as my favorite Jo Sonja fabric tool to “fuse” fiber materials with each other. These products work like a glue. I use this technique to create paper with silk fibers as well as to produce sheer layers with polyester large materials and also headscarfs.
Yes, adhering to the guidelines of typical quilting, just when I believed it was safe to throw the polyester from my stock– I understand, no, there aren’t any kind of rules! And also those non-traditional textiles can produce their very own magic. What’s actually unique is that despite having a wide variety of layers, you can keep a feeling of sheerness as well as openness.
It’s fantastic to have the light stream with. Like a piece of stained glass, yet in fiber type.
I have actually had a lot of enjoyable trying out this technique gradually. After being asked dozens of times about having a class to instruct a panel I had awaiting the store’s glass door framework, I create my suggestions for you, and also this weekend break, April 26-27, I will be teaching my Sheer Joy workshop.
Dealing with a variety of materials (sight brief supply listing) and these tools, we’ll develop customized mixed-media fabrics to produce large tabletop screen or home window dangling.
Day 1, Saturday, we will certainly develop our mixed-media materials, playing all the time (no sewing machine required). After giving them lots of time to completely dry, on Day 2, Sunday, we will work with these vibrant new fabrics to produce your selection of a totally free standing sculpture or a home window item.
