Layering is the magical component that brings a collage to life, adds depth, emotion and allows it to tell our story. However, layering does not always come easily.
In this class we will explore the concepts of layering: both visual layers and physical layers. We will have a crash course in collage design and composition with a focus on exactly what makes a great collage.
There are so many exciting techniques to use in mixed-media collages and we will learn and play with quite a few. Techniques will include image transfer and direct printing from your printer, staining fabrics, ideas for transparent layers, and stitch layers
This class is textile based and will include stitching but artists in all mediums are welcome to play, explore and create with us.
Start with a notebook and whatever you have in the craft box or studio; fabric scraps, paper, etc. You will already have many of the things you need and as you view lessons you can choose to purchase additional items you want to try.
