From where you are to somewhere else

Posted by Linda on 7 July 2016 | 3 Comments


My Elements in Fabric class will take you from where you are… someplace else. Someplace where waterfalls are made with MistyFuse, roving, and Angelina fiber...

...where trees are Puff Paint with Lutradur or Fiber Etched leaves

.....where painted melted cellophane and cracked ice make believable white water rapids, and skies are painted any color you like.

You’ll learn how to make a burning forest fire with layers of background, fused flames, metallic Angelina and shimmery threads; how to add shadows and highlights to make your scenes more dramatic; how to create puffy clouds and crashing waves.

All of these things will be learned while making 4 delightful, small, wallhangings. Come play with us, then use all this knowledge to create your own, inimitable, landscapes!

Here are just a few of the projects past students have created...

About Elements in Fabric: How do you create the four elements in fabric? How do you make earth, wind, fire and water so vivid they leap off the surface? In this class, you will gain a greater understanding of design principles as you work with a wide variety of techniques and products to thoroughly explore the possibilities open to us today. Linda will show you how to create water with fabric paints, painted melted cellophane, sheer fabrics and melted fibers. Then, let the wind carry you up into the sky to make storm clouds and lightning with batting and sheers, fabric paints, Angelina fibers and bobbin work. Next, you will feel the fire with Tintzl, shredded sheer fabrics, Bonding Agent 007, foil, fabric paints and markers. Read more...

  • We usually run it twice each year, however all the class information is available to download so if you do not get time to finish in the two month period, you can still continue on.... thanks for asking!

  • This is so intriguing but not time as kids are off for the summer. Is this a course you run other times of the year? Is the course accessable for future reference if I purchase it
