Upcoming Three Day Workshop with the Visual Arts Society of Texas

I am delighted to be teaching a three-day workshop with the Visual Arts Society of Texas in Denton, TX August 29, 30 and 31. The workshop will be in the beautiful Center for Visual Arts on the corner of Hickory and Bell.

Art Quilt Collage: Designing with Layers of Fabric, Paint and Stitch
Create surface design on fabric with hand made stamps, found object printing, stencils, wet-on-wet painting, handwriting and other improvisational mark-making then use your original fabrics plus various commercial fabrics to create an original small art quilt incorporating hand stitching. You’ll have lots of left over fabrics to incorporate in collage or other mixed media projects.

$185 for VAST members; $220 for non-members
Registration Fee is $50 for sign-up, and is non-refundable.  Please make checks payable to VAST and mail to Kristin Spalding 2507 High Pointe Blvd, McKinney 75071. For a supply list and questions, email Kristin   kgn2507 (at) yahoo (dot) com

We'll spend one day exploring various methods of creating print and pattern on fabric with hand made stamps, found object printing, wet-on-wet painting and mark making.

There will be lots of opportunity to explore design and composition using your original surface designed fabrics combined with commercial prints. There will be individual guidance and critique.

Explore adding design, line and texture with hand embroidery.

I'll demo finishing techniques and share lots of examples of interesting ways to layer fabric, paint and stitching.

I'd love to see you there!
