This class is two half days
Monday, July 15, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm and Tuesday, July 16, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
This unique method bonds silk fibers into a lustrous kind of “felt” which can be gossamer and transparent or thick and opaque as leather. Because the fibers are unspun, silk’s rich luster and texture are captured. Silk fusion is a perfect canvas for hand or machine stitching, printing, stamping, origami, quilting, jewelry, wearable art, book coverings, and collage.
There are two sessions to this class. The Silk Fusion takes approximately 15-24 hours to dry so on Monday morning we will start on an applique project and make your individual Silk Fusion. On Tuesday when the silk is dry you will remove your piece from the screen, fuse it and finish the appliques started on the first day. For the applique project you will work with a pre-made piece of Silk Fusion so you understand how if behaves and its workability.
Lots of colors and fun embellishments will be provided such as Angelina, Sari Silk Fibers, Funky Silk Fibers, ribbons and yarns to add to your piece. This is the really fun part! If you have any items for embellishments please bring them.
No sewing machine needed
