**Fabric Collage Online Workshop**

Branches, Buds and Blossoms: 
a botanical fabric collage
online workshop with Deborah Boschert


Join me in exploring botanical shapes, textures and patterns! I’ll share my process for creating a collage incorporating fabric, machine and hand stitching, and a variety of unexpected materials and techniques. You’ll choose your own fabrics, compose an original design and experiment with layers of detail. I’ll teach ways to add personal design to your fabrics with painted patterns. We’ll use simple construction techniques, then enhance your collage with a variety of unusual materials and interesting embellishments. Plus, I’ll share tons of fun embroidery stitches to add more detail. 

We’ll also have an opportunity to connect in real life with a 15 minute creative consult using Skype, FaceTime or another format. You’ll have a chance to show me what you’ve created, ask questions, get suggestions and get some personal inspiration tips from me! (I'm super excited about this new feature!)


This workshop was offered in 2012 as part of an online collection of video workshops called STITCHED. If you were a STITCHED student, you should know that the videos and the handouts are the same. The opportunity for the creative consult is new!

Wanna know a bit more about me before you dive into a workshop? Please check out my website where you can read by bio, check out the books and magazines in which I've been published and browse through lots of artwork.

Refer back to the text and images and download the handout as many times as needed. (And if you lose your log in info, you can email me and I'll hook you up.)
  • There are six video lessons for a total of more than 70 minutes of content. You can go through the lessons at your own pace.
  • A nine page downloadable workshop handout includes written step-by-step instructions and patterns for composition and stencils. (Because I know some people learn by listening and watching and some people learn by reading and looking at patterns.)
