Well hello everyone. This week has gone by so fast. I have been flat out making plans to go to Sydney to pick up my daughter and my 5 grandchildren to bring them back to South Australia. I have been madly looking for a house for her and the children to rent but so far no luck. I have had a couple of doctors appointments just for regular checkups and prescriptions filling.
I have not forgotten about the notes
from the last class and they will be up in the next couple of days. I
decided to train my dragon and use it for notes to save my wrists.
week we will be discussing fabric stamping and free machine embroidery.
So now is the time to get out those sewing machines and blow the dust
off them. Make sure you have some nice new universal needles and
threads. For the fabric some organza, cotton weave, silk etc will be
fine. If you do not have these fabrics you could work on canvas or paper
as well to follow along.
What I thought we would do is as we
work along we can make a technique book out of all the samples that we
will produce. Also remember to keep a sketch book for experimental
unfinished pieces and a box where you can put pieces that are too small,
not finished, you are not happy with them type stuff. Later down the
track we will be using this box of things to make a new work of art.
Okay so on with what you will need this week to follow along.
Week 2: Materials
PVA Glue (this is the white glue you get from hardware stores)
Stamping objects - bubble wrap, rubber stamps, onion bags, cookie cutters, foil, sponges, hand carved stamps etc
Surfaces - Cotton Weave (muslin, broadcloth etc), Silk, Organza (or other sheer fabric), Paper, Canvas etc
above stamping and surface items are examples only. Use your
imagination for stamping objects and do not be scared to grab any other
types of fabric to play with.
Of course you can still
follow along with no items and gather them at a later date if you just
want to come along and watch and have a chat.
So until Thursday 11am (AEST)I will say goodbye and hope to see you all at my Spreecast channel Made with Mojo
