Learn from the best! I'm teaching a fun two-week workshop, and spaces are still available. Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts, Gatlinburg, TN
The focus of this class is on clothes design and tricking them out with surface design and embellishment. Instead of using commercial patterns, students start with a "rub-off" paper pattern by tracing their favorite clothing piece and working off it to inspire new and original apparel designs. Participants will take each other's measurements and use them to make patterns that correspond to their bodies. The incorporation of immersion dyeing, shibori, free-motion embroidery and simple screen printing allows you to create truly individual fashion, and learn techniques to finish your work quickly and cleanly without the use of a serger. Open to all skill levels.
