The starting point of this workshop is the deconstruction and reconstruction of your collected fabric samples. These will be combined with canvas, silk, cotton, linen, and paper on which you will draw, paint, stitch, and make your marks. 

This adventure in spontaneous mark-making on fabric will be augmented through the addition of printed imagery, thus giving focus to your works-in-progress.

Breaking away from an overly familiar and cautious approach and breaking the rules will lead you into unknown territory, the place where innovative and remarkable new work will be born.

Jason joins us from Kansas City.

Students are required to bring a sewing machine with a free motion foot.
