We will explore many different materials in the class, and I encourage you to bring any artist materials you might be interested in working with.
No sewing machines are necessary.
Included in the class is a sample of each of the nonwovens. This is sufficient to execute all of the class projects, additional material will be available in class for purchase, depending on supply.
Also included is 1 yard of 8mm silk habotai.
Included in the class is the use of my fabric paint. Students may also bring their own including Dye-Na-Flow, SetaSilk, Lumiere, Setacolor, or other fabric paints.
