Event Details

 

Appliqué is a fun way to add a personal and decorative touch to so many items–think t-shirts, tote bags, quilts, etc. In this workshop we’ll go over some quick and easy ways to approach hand appliqué. We’ll discuss fabric types, using [or not using] fusible web, where to get design inspiration, how to transfer designs to fabric, and how to stop [or incorporate] frayed edges. Several embroidery stitches and techniques for tacking down your pieces will be demonstrated as well. Basic hand sewing knowledge required.

 

About Lisa

 

Lisa Solomon is a mixed media artist based in the Bay Area who moonlights as a graphic designer and professor. She often questions and deconstructs the meaning of identity and personal histories through the use of mediums traditionally associated with domestic crafts. A “happa” [1/2 Japanese, 1/2 Caucasian] she feels as though hybridization is consistently at play in her work. She exhibits her work both nationally and internationally and is the author of Knot Thread Stitch – exploring creativity through embroidery and mixed media [Quarry]. Lisa shares her home with her husband, a young daughter, a bevy of pets and many many spools of thread.
