Applying Color and Design to Cloth, Presentation and Trunk Show

Hello, I would like to invite you to the Austin Fiber Artist August monthly meeting. I am so jazzed that I have been asked to be the monthly speaker on Wednesday, August 15th from 7-9 p.m. The event will be held at Holy Cross Lutheran Church located at 4622 South Lamar in Austin, Texas. Show & Tell begins at 6:45 pm, followed by the business meeting at 7:00 pm with a program following. Visitors are welcome. For more information, please visit http://austinfiberartists.org/meetings . The presentation, Applying Color and Design to Cloth will discuss ways to create fabric with a variety of mediums. This is so important because often times, we are looking for that perfect fabric to incorporate into a piece. After much searching, we often find ourselves in need of that elusive fabric. The truth is we CAN create our own unique, one of a kind, piece of cloth and it is much easier than we might think. Painting, dyeing and inking on cloth can be a lot of fun and the design process is quite rewarding. Lecture will include different ways to add both color and design by painting, dyeing, inking, stamping and stencilling on various mediums. This presentation will include a trunk show with examples of how to incorporate newly created cloth into finished pieces. If you are in the neighborhood, please stop by. We would love to see you!
