17 July 2011  TEXTILE ART & EMBROIDERY class #3  resumes after being deferred last week.

Class will begin @10am with Siti's Design Development & Embroidery session. Learn to develop ideas & motifs from Nature - tree bark, roots, branches, leaves, etc.

Colour study continues at 11.30am.  Since the weather has been quite unpredictable (rain/cloudy), the heliography workshop will be replaced with  DISCHARGE PAINTING / PRINTING, where colour is removed from the fabric instead of applied to the fabric.  Participants are to bring cotton coloured (plain or patterned) fabric that has been washed to remove 'sizing' (chemicals that are used to treat new fabric).

You can also bring  old cotton patchwork/quilts with strong colours, dark coloured skirts, shirts, tee-shirts to practice on - there will be surprising results as we may not know what colour with appear once paint have been removed!

Class may end later than the scheduled 1pm due to the extended syllabus and depending on everyone's enthusiasm :)
