Put new subtlety and variety into your work using transparency and layering. Discover how to use a range of sheers such as organza, voile, tulle and net to create mystery and depth in your work. Learn how to make successful use of raw edges, seams, creases and grooves to create see-through richness. Enhance your technical skills with unusual fabrics, and have the option of adding various papers to create a mixed media work. Add layered subtlety with carefully chosen threads, stitched by machine or hand or both to make a richly textured and elegant composition. Students will create their own unique work in response to the subject matter presented in class. Download supply list.
