Quilting Arts Workshop With Ginny Eckley
Fiber artist Ginny Eckley takes viewers on a surface design adventure using screen printing, soy wax resist, dye, fabric manipulation, and more. Join Ginny and learn to create pleasing artwork that combines a mix of imagery with a balance of abstraction. After an overview and a discussion of design, Ginny demonstrates how to create precise images using silk screens, then she shows a variety of methods for using soy wax to soften the imagery and add interest to backgrounds. Soy application techniques covered in this workshop include using a string wrapped brayer, wooden blocks, and chip brushes. Next, discover how to set off your designs by adding a tranquil mix of pleated patterns, reminiscent of shibori. Learning new techniques is wonderful, and combining new techniques to create art is even better! 'Surface Design with Ginny Eckley', DVD, run time 75 minutes.
