Reclaimed Denim: A Figurative Workshop

Thursday, September 5, 2019, 9-4

Workshop description:
Join artist Jim Arendt for a workshop in figurative appliqué! Students will learn techniques for turning tired jeans into objects of beauty. Explore ways to visualize, plan, and execute patchwork images using hand, machine, and experimental techniques for the studio. Appliqué is a needlework technique in which patterns or representational scenes are created by the attachment of smaller pieces of fabric to a larger piece of contrasting color or texture. It is particularly suitable for work which is to be seen from a distance, such as banner-making, patchwork, and mending.
