Voyage to India: An exploration of Image transfer techniques
India is an inspiring land of incredible beauty and color. With the colors and sights of this luscious country as our inspiration we will explore image transfer techniques while we create a richly decorated reference book to hold our experiments. We will learn multiple methods for transferring photos and other imagery on to fabric, paper and metal. Learn the ins and outs of ink jet printer inks and which products produce the results you are looking for. Create collages on each page of your sample book using your transferred images, paper, fabric and embellishments. Technique notes can be stored in pockets to make this book a valuable reference tool.

Why I Sew:
I have been intrigued with stitching since I was a child. I have never lost the feeling that something magical happens when you combine fabric and stitch. There are just so many possibilities….will this fabric want to be a bag, a journal cover, or a skirt or become part of a special story in collage? Fabric is such a malleable material. It can be draped, sculpted, textured or smooth. Stitching is so incredibly satisfying….why would anyone not sew?
