If you have ever taken a workshop from Anita Mayer, you know this workshop will offer a rich experience in surface design techniques and creativity.
This is a hands-on workshop creating, designing, and completing a passport/boarding pass holder while learning fabric painting, beading, stitchery, shisha mirror and lining methods.
Participants will learn about how to combine fabric colors and textures, sources and materials suitable for beading, fabrics that are appropriate for lining, and ways to use simple embroidery stitches in creative ways.
All of the techniques used in this class are applicable for use on clothing or accessories. The instructor's collection of these examples will be displayed.
Materials: $40 for kits of materials (melton cloth, embroidery floss, mirrors, beading needle and sewing needle, beads, fabrics for lining, cord for necklace, fabric paints, foam brushes, and handouts).
Material fee will automatically be added during registration for the workshop.
