Aren’t we lucky Michelle is back given this Tunic class is so popular and will be teaching this class again at the Studio Saturday and Sunday 19th & 20th May 2018.
A bit about Michelle. Michelle describes herself as a textile artist who uses the sewing machine, colour and texture to tell a story using free motion machine embroidery techniques to fill the soul with colour. She considers that it is the everyday that holds the beauty and inspiration, watching the seasons change, listening and laughing with friends and family and the roar of the ocean. She likes to convey colour and movement to how she respond emotionally. Her textile artwork is not accurate or a literal depiction but rather she sees darting dragonflies, spring gardens, butterfly kisses, and the sound of the ocean as she moves around what she is making.
When she is creating she loves to use hand dyed fibres and silks, found objects and collected treasures. She layers, tears, folds, stitches and paints to allow her sewing machine to dance across the surface and pull all the elements together.
As a teacher her goal is to inspire her students and create passion when using colour and texture while introducing her students to new materials and techniques. http://chelletextiles.com.au/
Note – This workshop is not about the construction of a garment but rather it is about the art work on your beautiful garment!!!!
In the workshop you will be using hand dyed silk mesh, hand dyed silk fibres, silk yarns, hand stitch, hand dyed silk velvet. These gorgeous ingredients will be free motion machine embroidery onto the body of your chosen garment. Michelle will provide kits for the art work on the garment and all participants will need to provide their garment fabric and a pattern which will be discussed closer to the workshop date.
At the end of the workshop you will have a wonderful wearable art garment.
