Paper lamination new material listEver considered combining embroidery with paper? You might want to after this workshop! Paper can add unique qualities to STITCHED textiles. And this workshop will introduce you to the excitement and versatility of using printed imagery.
One technique we will be focusing on is called paper lamination. Paper lamination makes it possible to incorporate laminated images with textile in multiple ways.
In one day, you will learn different ways of laminating papers to fabric to produce interesting smooth or (visual) textured surfaces to stitch on. We will create fragmented photos and whole photo transfers, and we will also use metallic foils to give your work some bling!
You can use your own photographic images (laserprint only), or pictures and text from old books or newspaper photos. You can also use your gelliplate papers from the Doe een Date met Gelliplate workshop. (Combine this workshop with the Doe een Date workshop and get 10% discount on both!)
After laminating images on texile, we will embroider by hand or machine to create fabulous, exciting and layered works of art to take home with us.
This workshop is suitable for anyone interested in working creatively with fabric, thread, paper and paint.
