Fundamentals & Techniques
This workshop will demonstrate how to design and create personalized fabric cards – postcards and two types of note cards. These can be used as Holidays cards, gift or note cards, or small pieces of artwork. We will use fabric scraps to create cards that are expressive, intuitive and imperfect embodying the spirit of wabi-sabi.*
You will learn basic techniques of working with fabric – with no sewing – and leave with 5 – 10 cards and the skills to keep creating at home.
- Part 1: Demonstration of non-sewing techniques to craft fabric cards
- Part 2: Create your own unique cards with hands on assistance as needed
* From Wikipedia: Wabi-sabi (侘寂) represents Japanese aesthetics and world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete”. Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, asperity (roughness or irregularity), simplicity, … and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes.
