SA Creates: Fabric Landscapes
1859 Kingston Road
This two-hour workshop will take a hands-on approach to making a fabric landscape. Working from images inspired by the Group of Seven, participants will build their landscape using an iron and fusible web on selected fabrics to create a beautiful piece of art. Some of the fabrics used in the workshop are hand-dyed by the facilitator and will be used to create a watercolour effect. A demonstration of this collage technique and step by step instruction will guide each participant to completion. All supplies and tools to make the landscape are included and no sewing is required.
ABOUT THE FACILITATORAnne Queen is a Family Studies teacher with the TDSB since 1994, specializing in sewing and textile art. A life-long learner, Anne has studied watercolour painting with three local artists. These mentors continue to provide Anne with a strong understanding of the elements and principles of design. Recently, this led Anne to experiment with tie-dyed fabrics and various materials, resulting in the fabric landscape collage. What started as a culminating activity for students at Maplewood High School, has turned into a passion for expression. In the past 2 years, Anne has offered several workshops to participants at Toronto Public Libraries.
