Textile Art Collage, Virtual Workshop

Stitching a Story, Collage workshop by April Sproule.
Skill Levels: All
Duration: 1-2 Days
  Join us for a really fun workshop as we explore techniques for making a small, approximately 14” x 18”, textile art collage piece that depicts the things you love and are meaningful to you. This project is incredibly freeing, and I am so happy to share my creative processes with you.
   These pieces not only make great gifts, but you get to experiment with lots of different ideas and techniques in the process as we combine fabric, paper, and other ephemera. Come along with me as I introduce you to my simple techniques for creating a piece you will have a blast making. Topics covered:
  • Subject matter
  • Composition and color
  • Hand and machine embellishment options
  • Hand stitching without a hoop
  • Mounting and display techniques
Queen Bee, Stitching a Story, Collage workshop by April Sproule
This piece was made with my Bee Stencil, hand dyed linen, hand made paper from Nepal, and a photo of one of my colored pencil drawings that I printed on Silk Organza. And, of course, lots of hand stitching.
