A five-day summer course in beautiful cottage country
At Haliburton School of Art & Design, Haliburton campus
Haliburton School of Art & Design
Juxtapose fibre art with natural materials to create a framed, stitched, three-dimensional textile assemblage. Allow the rich textures, brilliant colours and nuanced lines of stitched textiles to interact with the mysterious beauty of the imprinted stone, the gentle branch or a fragile leaf. Incorporate fabric transfers of precious photos, and tell a story with the remnants of an heirloom quilt. Create an evocative and exciting composition that combines the work of our hands with that of Mother Nature's. Work with a variety of textiles, including remnants of our own stitched, embroidered and embellished work, new fabrics, and found pieces of textiles that catch your eye.
