Students will bring a half yard piece of fabric suitable for a sea-scapey type collage…..choose something you will love to work with, and color or print that suits your “style”
Thread will be provided, as well as other fabrics to create your collage “painting”. There will also be a piece of tulle to cover a fat quarter size work of art.
The teacher will bring many threads, fabrics, yarns, and other goodies to include in your collage.
