This workshop will focus on constructing dynamic, textured, mixed media surfaces with machine embroidery and Sulky® water-soluble stabilizers. We will explore the use of 3 different types of water-soluble stabilizer to discover create textile structures with stitch. Students will be encouraged to experiment with an assortment of materials like plastics, papers, and yarns to create a variety of samples exploring different texture and color combinations with a variety of stabilizers. Students will expand these tests into a larger piece, taking the process in their own direction to create wall hangings, scarves or experimental works.
Thread: polyester machine embroidery threads.
Water-soluble Stabilizer (Solvy): Each person will get some Sulky® Sticky Fabri Solvy, Sulky® Fabri Solvy, and Sulky® Solvy to try out the different types of stabilizer. Plus smaller scraps of solvy for testing and samples for the first morning of the workshop.
