Ready, Set, Sew...and Beyond!

On Friday I had the pleasure of working with Career & Technology Studies teachers in Grande Prairie presenting my workshop, "Ready, Set, Sew...and Beyond!"

Participants explored multiple fabric painting techniques in the morning, and then sewed in the afternoon while their paintings dried. We covered a lot of ground in a very short time!

First, working on dry fabric:

Stenciling using various tools & methods for application of paint
Mini mono prints!
Stamping (yellow leaves) & "pulling" paint for effect

Next, working on wet fabric:

Colour blending, printing, ricing, salting, grids...& creative explorations!

And then some sewing:

And finally, the big reveal!

Some really great prints

& fabulous effects

What a wonderful way to spend the day!

The work shown in this post was done by class participants. They certainly embodied the spirit of Try, Learn, Grow!
