Collage as a Design Tool in Quilting

Collage as a Design Tool in Quilting

Collage–from the French word ‘to glue’–is a visual composition made of several pieces.  ‘To glue’ in this context is to stitch fabric elements on top of each other to form a balanced composition. Collage can be a very strong design tool and is an excellent way for an artist to explore their inner voice.  Students will use duck cloth as a base and build from there.  Presentations will focus on how collage can be used effectively to enhance your design skills.  Mixed media supplies such as paint, paper, found objects and gel medium will be used to create small design studies.  These design studies are used to help clarify one’s design voice and style.  Techniques using layering, painting and collaging will be taught. Workshop includes a design presentation and demonstrations for mixed media materials.  This mixed media play workshop will allow you to step gently out of your comfort zone in a collaborative and supportive environment!
