Sorry, we are no longer accepting registrations for this course. Please contact our office to find out if it will be rescheduled, or if alternative classes are available.

Do you have a collection of scrap material piling up from past sewing projects? Have you been holding on to those left over remnants, you just don't have the heart to throw away?  Imagine utilizing those beautiful gems, left from some of your favorite materials and pulling them all together to create a piece of artwork.

Join Lisa Agaran for a day of fun and creativity as you create a mixed m edia piece with interesting scraps of fabric and material. In this all day workshop you will learn the importance of layering materials from larger scale to smaller to develop a sense of background and foreground.  Lisa will go over techniques on how to distress and age fabric. Gain an understanding on how to apply a sense of composition and color schemes to create cohesiveness and harmony. We will also add text, images and found objects as the final touches to your mixed media piece.

The instructor provides all the materials, although you might want to bring a good pair of sharp scissors to cut fabric, and interesting found objects (optional). A $25 material fee is payable to the instructor in class. All levels of art experience are welcome!
