Wearing Your Art on Your Sleeves ... and Everywhere Else (Virtual Workshop)

July 25, 2020

Schedule: 1:1 through Aug 15

Instructor: Helen Klebesadel

Registration Deadline: Registration Closed

Description

NOW A VIRTUAL WORKSHOP!  Have you been thinking about printing your artwork on fabric? It seems complicated, but Helen will guide you through the process of using Spoonflower, a custom printer that gives artists the ability to design their own fabrics from the comfort of a home computer.  She’ll show you how to do a simple replication of images for projects on cloth, how to put your image in repeat (called “tiling”) and endless other project possibilities like making large-scale wall works, patterns for dolls or stuffed toys, and placement of images for apparel design. This isn’t just a lecture — you will actually be doing the work with your own images during class and end with submission ready designs.

The Process:  There will be a pre-workshop message sent July 14 with instructions on how to prepare for the workshop.  Participants will be invited to an (optional) introductory Zoom meeting to meet one another on Saturday, July 25 from 1-2 pm.  Lessons will be shared on an interactive class blog.  Participants will create designs at their own pace over the course of a month.  Helen will work individually with each of the participants using email and Dropbox to guide the process and share images as participants develop and complete a design for printing.  The class will reconvene for a closing (optional) Zoom meeting August 15, 2020 from 1:00 to 2:00 to share their designs
