Using wooden, sewing spools as a base, we will paint, ink, stamp, mark make, stitch, and ultimately wind our way to mixed media mayhem. This workshop will focus on surface design, with an emphasis on creating loosely and without overthinking. We will start by hand-stitching together your choice of paper and fabric to create long strands to work over. Following this, we will apply mixed media techniques to create a unique design, filled edge-to-edge and end-to-end with your favorite colors, personal symbols, and both hand-drawn and stamped marks. We will each complete multiple spools, allowing for many different display options - both free-standing and hung. Spools will be provided but you are asked to bring your own paper, fabric and thread to further personalize your creation.

Kit/Materials Fee (payable to instructor at class time):

  • $5
  • Vintage spools
  • Needles and thread
  • Background and symbol stamps to share

Student should bring:

  • Paper and/or Fabric - any paper between about 65 and 90 lbs will work. While you can bring in pre-painted or scrapbook paper as a base, plain lightweight watercolor paper or cardstock will also work. Lightweight fabric that you are willing/able to paint/ink over can also work.
  • Fiber Strands - you will need several of these as a way to close your wrapping around your spools. Options are sari silk ribbon, torn fabric strips, etc.
  • Acrylic Paint - just bring a few bottles of your favorite colors
  • Dye Ink Pads (Distress are my favorite but any brand will do)
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Favorite Adhesive (for example glue stick, PVA, matte medium, etc.)
  • Craft Sponges
  • Black and White fine tip journaling pens and any other of your favorite mark makers (pens, pencils, markers, paint pens, etc.)
