Andrea integrates various media, including drawing, painting, printmaking and digital imagery, with machine and hand stitching to embellish each image in a way that will emphasize and convey to the viewer, my initial fascination with my subjects.

Level:  All Levels Welcome





Develop richly patterned fabrics, learn versions of traditional surface design techniques, see how textile pigments, modified soy wax “batik”, and a faux “sun-print” transforms plain fabric into original textiles that can be hung as works of art or used to create apparel, quilts, or home décor.

Apply soy wax as a resist with contemporary batik techniques (stamping, drawing, and painting), layer colors and designs with the fabric paints. Create a second piece by arranging interesting objects on fabric using fluid fabric paint. As the paint dries on the fabric, the objects will leave an impression. Completed pieces can also be further embellished with printing, stenciling, or fabric markers. Participants are encouraged to experiment and explore the versatility of both techniques.
