Explore color and shape. Build a contemporary textile collage! In this class you will select a confined palette of solid colors in cotton, linen and silk. You will be encouraged to play with different weights and textures including vintage fabrics. Through repetition and layering of simple geometric forms (circles, squares, triangles) you will develop a graphic poem in cloth. We will begin by dyeing silk organza and thread for hand stitching (Gignoux’s studio*). Workshop includes machine and hand stitching. All levels welcome.

Supply list:

3-6 yards silk organza (for dye workshop)

(*studio supply fee based on materials used: payable to Gignoux)
