Let me tell you about my New Workshop! Digital Collage!

One of the ideas inspirations presented in my book, see side bar at top,  is printing photographs on collage substrates!

New Workshop! Digital Collage!

In this one day workshop, Digital Collage! Create a 12x12 fabric and paper collage to print on! We print the collage in the workshop using our own photographs! Based on Wen's book- ‘Digital Fiber Art and Mixed Media Masterpieces’.
Printer must be provided by students. Share!
                        Participants can create a simple altered photograph of their very own to print! Wen includes a demonstration on her new innovative sneaky layering technique so you can easily create unique layered photos!
            You can use Photoshop or an app called Photoshop Mix or any similar blending app. The app should be able to blend or layer 2 or more photos. This should be downloaded before class onto your phone or ipad.
            inkAid will be introduced and used. The collage you create with your own fabrics will be digitally prepared with grounds for a very clear and lasting fabric print. 
            Wen will show you her innovative batting technique- fusing felt to the back which serves as both backing and batting! 
            The digital collage quilt will feature a new edge treatment that uses paint! Her painted edges yield a wonderful new textural accent to the finished piece. You’ll learn how to apply a protective coating, medium enhancements or washes to the top of the quilt that will enhance the colors and protect it too. the students will have the opportunity to try specialty medium enhancements for a unique mixed media mini quilt! And a secret collage after treatment!
            A great way to extend this workshop would be to add a 1 day Fab Fabric Painting workshop first and use some of those newly painted fabrics in the collage creation!
Hope you’ll join us!
