Crafting a Narrative

, Advancing the Art of the Book.

In this two day weekend workshop, instructor Iviva Olenick will demonstrate how to use fiber and fabric-related techniques to create narrative. Students will learn how to use embroidery to render text, methods for transferring words and images onto fabric, and basic applique and fabric collage techniques. Students will play with permanent and non-permanent paints, inks, and markers for marking directly on fabric; and will experiment with combining fabric and additional materials.

The goal is for students to incorporate new techniques into the creation of a soft "book" in unconventional form, or a piece of narrative artwork. Basic supplies are provided (embroidery thread, needles, some simple fabric, tools for transferring source material onto fabric). Bring to class any piece of writing you would like to explore, and any materials that inspire you. You can also bring samples of past work to share with the class.
