Explore ways to blend color, line and gesture with a variety of fabrics and find your way to making a beautiful contemporary textile. We will begin by dyeing silk organza and thread for hand stitching.  We will combine hand-dyed silks with linens and cottons. We will invent new colors by layering lengths of translucent silk organza via collage creating an expressive abstract landscape of cloth. Incorporate vintage fabrics. Through the repetition of simple geometric forms you will develop an expressive abstract landscape. Investigate and explore the surface with machine and hand stitching.  Join us.
