This textile art class will enable participants to create a 10 x 12 or 16 x 20 inch work of art using their own landscape or flower photograph as a starting point. Students will begin by drawing or tracing their photograph onto a piece of white fabric. They will then learn how to: create their own stencils for use in cutting out fabric shapes; piece the shapes onto the white fabric, using fabric adhesives or thread; use various embroidery techniques to appliqué and finish the work. Issues discussed will include form, color, composition, line, and technique. Students will receive a supply packet which they may take home with them.
Carolyn Harper is a Philadelphia based textile artist who exhibits locally and nationally. In 2023 she will be having solo exhibitions in Kettering, OH; Philadelphia; Indianapolis; and Greeley, Colorado.
