Live from the Studio: Virtual Workshop, Fabric Art with Jasmine Best

This virtual workshop focuses on creating an image from one’s memory. Jasmine Best will be teaching different image-creating techniques for fabric that do not require a sewing machine. Students will learn about:

• different kinds of quick hand stitching (e.g., running stitch)
• painting on fabric with fabric friendly watercolors
• approaches to cutting and folding fabric to form specific shapes
• intentional mark making with embroidery (e.g., embroidery stitch techniques)
• how to think about color, pattern, and composition

The workshop consists of two 90-minute sessions on Saturday, May 22 and 29, 1:30–3 pm each day.
