Have you ever experienced something that couldn’t be expressed in words? Is there an experience, feeling, prayer, or desire you would like to express through art? Now is your chance!
Starting April 15, I will be teaching an online class with Fiber Art Mixed Media titled “Turning the Prayer of Your Heart Into Art”. In this five week, online class, you will learn how to design and create an art quilt inspired by a favorite prayer or transformative experience.
Each Monday, starting April 15, a new lesson will be posted to the Fiber Art Mixed Media (FAMM) website. You can access them any time after that until the end of the semester in June 2013. If you have any questions about the lesson or need advice, log onto the FAMM website and post your questions and/or pictures to the site. Heather will be checking the site throughout the week to answer your questions and guide you through the process.
Below is an outline of the 5 Lessons:
Lesson 1: Translating Prayer Into Art – Choose your Inspiration and Design Your Quilt
Lesson 2: Weaving Words – Learn different ways to incorporate words into the piece
Lesson 3: From Sketch to Fabric – Determine the best techniques to create your piece and start sewing
Lesson 4: Carefully Considered Quilting and Embellishments – Decide what quilting lines and/or patterns will help tell your story, Add beads, buttons and more!
Lesson 5: Finishing Touches – Make final decisions about embellishments, borders, and binding, create a label and decide how/if it will hang.
