Beneath the Surface- 2 day class

Alisa Burke

$300.00 $350.00

I LOVE surface design and with a background in painting and printmaking I have discovered and put my twist on all kinds of easy techniques to build layers, create pattern, work with color and use a variety of simple tools and materials to go wild on the surface of fabric. Rarely will you find me buying fabric for my sewing and mixed media projects, instead I always try and make my own. The result is a huge stash of colorful, sometimes messy, pretty, unique and one of a kind fabric to use in a variety of my projects.
Beneath the Surface is a two class dedicated to designing and creating your very own unique and one of a kind fabric. We will start with the design process and move into all kinds of techniques- screen printing, using dye, resists, painting, printmaking, stamp carving and LOTS more! After two days of creativity you will walk away with all kinds of new techniques, inspiration and a STACK of fabric to use in your own creative projects!
