Fabric Art Workshop

A couple of my very game, very creative young students from summer. I taught an overview of surface design techniques as applied to prayer flag/banners. It's amazing how flexible their minds are, and how fast they grasp new concepts! I'm hoping they will stay with the special qualities unique to fabric art. . .

More T-Shirt Transfer Technique

I don't believe I ever posted these on my blog. I wasn't supposed to show images before the Quilting Arts magazine article came out, due to their copyright policies, and the bird's nest was in the 2015 spring issue. So, here's an example of the use of t-shirt transfer paper. Draw the image in a sketchbook, then copy it onto the transfer paper. Iron onto your fabric (DON'T use any steam, it'll fragment your art). You can buy 10 sheets of transfer paper at Dharma Trading for about 10 bucks.
