Creating Fabrics with Mixed Media with Darlene Bayley - South 4

Creating your own fabrics need NOT be a messy adventure, and is a great way to personalize and add to your fibre art stash. The best part is, you can do anything from a small piece of fabric up to a half meter with little stress. Join Darlene for a fun workshop, combining Inktense pencils, water-soluble crayons and some basic fabric paints. Darlene will bring along her MASSIVE collection of stencils, rubbing plates and other mixed media “toys” for you to play with. Leave this workshop with some absolutely beautiful works of art!

Supply List:
  • At least 1M of 100% cotton fabric, white. This does not have to be PFD fabric and needs no pretreatment.
  • 1 Fat Quarter of a tone-on-tone white fabric
  • 1 Fat Quarter of a black & white printed fabric
  • EITHER a small selection of Derwent Inktense Pencils OR Caran D’Ache Neocolor II WATERSOLUBLE crayons. If you have any other water-soluble markers/crayons you wish to try, bring them along and we will explore them together. These are available at your local art stores.
  • Fabric paints - Mont Marte, Pebeo (Setacolor) and Jacquard all have paints designed to go directly onto fabric.
  • *IF you have acrylic paints or craft paint you wish to work with on fabric, you may, but you
    should purchase a fabric medium to go with them.
  • Paint brushes - nothing expensive is required. A brush width of a minimum of 1/2” is best.
  • Small stencil brush
  • Container to hold water and to clean your brush in
  • Small pallet (paper plate even) to mix some paint colours on
  • Spray bottle for water
  • A few paper towels to clean brushes with
  • Plastic to cover table while working
  • Optional but a good idea - an apron to wear while you work!
  • Fabric scissors (we’ll be working with fabric pieces approx fat 1/4 size for ease in this class
  • Plastic bags to carry wet fabrics home in

This class will take place upstairs in classroom 4!
