Mixing UP Media-On line course Set for April 1, 2016

CL_emb_200My online course: Mixing Up Media is scheduled on the Academy of Quilting for April 1st.

This is your opportunity to learn about various mediums that I like to use.





What are they?

  • Interfacing
  • Tissue Paper
  • Silk Organza

I will present a new way to think about using unique products and found objects to make art with. The history behind this procurement is: I once lived in a rural area. There were few basic stores and the closest larger town was 1 hour away. Internet access was on dial up, ugh! Thus, often I found myself looking at what supplies I had on hand and experimented with those. This lead to excellent discoveries. One such item is interfacing. I use it as a painting surface and more. I will share my discoveries in this course. I also hope to inspire people to love the beauty of simplicity. For example, the beauty of hand sewing, hand quilting and taking the time to sit down and embrace ZEN.

This was quite a few years ago and yet….I still like to resource, recycle and challenge myself.

I know that many fiber artists “collect” fabric…the infamous “stash”. I for one, do not want a stash.

I on the contrary….want to have a color palette to use that is from various sources. This is pertinent for making ORIGINAL art.

Example: Painted tissue paper

In my course I will share my favorite techniques. You can use these endlessly. You will learn a lot!
