Surface Treatments: July 2015 Program

As a fiber artist, Donna is always seeking news ways in which to introduce layers to her fabric before quilting them. This often involves experimentation with various dye techniques, printmaking, texture and mark making-all of which are referred to as 'surface design' in the fiber arts world. Organic plant matter and rust are ways in which a fiber artist can employ that is not only readily accessible, sustainable and economical, but also non-toxic. It is in combining these various technique combinations that allow for a much broader range of surface design.
Donna's lecture and demonstration at the July RRAA meeting will focus primarily on the rusting techniques she uses to create her fiber surface designs. Donna will be sharing her 'start to finish' process along with some samples of her work and a powerpoint presentation.

This program will follow the business portion of the monthly membership meeting.
