Fabric and the book form often marry to become stunning pieces of art. In this 2-day workshop, students will learn a variety of techniques to create images and embellish fabric that will be sewn together to make a simple and durable counting book for children or a sample book for the working fiber/book artist. Image-making techniques will include dying, painting, drawing, printing, stenciling, sewing, and digital transfer.  Instructor Lynn Agnew will walk us through a variety of sewn book techniques. Using buttons, embroidery thread, fabric scraps and other decorative techniques, participants will take home a sampler book of various techniques that can be utilized as a reference for making more ‘soft books’.  

This is a great opportunity to work with both fabrics and books...  It's an opportunity not to be missed!

Supply fee: $15

Take Away: Students will take home a sampler book, plus ideas and instructions for making more.
