This workshop offers a chance to gather and use bits and pieces of fabric, yarn, and all that “great stuff” you have been saving. Using coiling, wrapping, and stitching, students will make a four-legged animal using found materials. Bryant will teach the techniques she has developed, and students will be encouraged to develop their own as they create their four-legged friend. All levels

Collage with Stitch

Clare Murray Adams
June 26-30, 2020
Tuition: $545
(includes 35 reg. fee & lunch on first/last days)

In this workshop, we will be working both with fabric and paper, and participants will learn through exercises designed to explore the similarities and differences between applique work with fabric and collage work on paper. Blending the two techniques, students will create works with visual texture and depth through layering and stitching, either by hand or on the machine. We will explore using stitch as a drawing line and the use of non-traditional embellishments.  All levels

This five-day workshop encourages students to experiment with innovative and intuitive ways of creating structures and forms using organic, found, and recycled materials.

Using unusual techniques developed by Geoffrey to overcome construction challenges, each student will complete a variety of forms, something they want to create. All levels
