surface design
Series 2

mixed media Fiber Art

In this 3-week class, you will use the altered materials you created in Surface Design Series 1 to layer into unique art pieces.

Week 1: We will sort through the interesting materials created in Series 1 and begin playing with layers to create a layered art piece. We will talk a bit about composition, but mostly we trust our eye to find pleasing combinations. Then you will begin working with adhesives to build layers on a stabilized background.

Week 2: You will continue building up the layers on your piece, considering how additional materials will enhance your piece’s composition. This might include adding found objects and other altered fabrics. Embellishments such as mono-prints and using a burn tool to make additional marks will be introduced.

Week 3: We will explore the process of completing your art piece, including knowing when your piece is finished. Several methods of finishing your piece will be covered, including mounting using cloth on a rod or a wired board, and matting and framing. Often there is not time to get to presentation completed but you’ll leave with a plan!
