Virtual Workshop: Wearing Your Art on Your Sleeves … and Everywhere
July 17 @ 8:00 am - August 14 @ 5:00 pm
I will be revisiting an online workshop I developed last summer for Shake Rag Alley Center for the Arts exploring how to turn your art into fabric designs using the print-on-demand venue Spoonflower.com. Register by July 5th for Wearing Your Art on Your Sleeves … and Everywhere Else, July 17-August 14, 2021. This is another ‘go-at-your-own-pace workshop with weekly optional Zoom meetings for Q&A scheduled for 5 Saturdays from 1-2 pm. Here is the description:
Have you been thinking about printing your artwork on fabric? It seems complicated, but Helen will guide you through the process of using Spoonflower, a custom printer that gives artists the ability to design their own fabrics from the comfort of a home computer. She’ll show you how to do a simple replication of images for projects on cloth, how to put your image in repeat (called “tiling”) and endless other project possibilities like making large-scale wall works, patterns for dolls or stuffed toys, and placement of images for apparel design. This isn’t just a lecture — you will actually be doing the work with your own images during class and end with submission-ready designs.
