Learn to make a gorgeous, multi-purpose fabric art banner as a method of upcycling scrap fabric into something beautiful. Inspired by nature’s shapes and employing the sensuous lines of curves, Jean has developed a pattern she will share with participants as they create their art banners. The nature of the design is such that irregularities in the curves add to the interest of the piece, so participants will follow a pattern but there will be no need to get too meticulous! There will be plenty of room to play and experiment in this class. Jean supports workshop participants to develop an ordered way of working, in order to keep track of pattern pieces in sequence, while creating a stunning art piece.
*Hand-selected fabric and pattern will be provided and included in the price of the class. These materials can be picked up at the Southern Oregon Guild on Monday June 7th, between 4pm and 6pm. There are some additional materials, tools and household items you will need to source yourself.
