We are so very excited to announce the addition of one very talented instructor to our Portland Art & Soul roster... Rebekah Meier!
Rebekah is an established author, designer, and teacher in the mixed-media and fabric collage community. Her books, magazine features, and product development exemplify her signature style of combining fabrics and fibers into beautiful collage assemblages. Rebekah is the author of the best selling books, Fabric Art Collage, 40+ Mixed Media Techniques and More Fabric Art Collage.
Here's what she's offering this Spring at our 2015 Portland event. Check out these lovely layered cloth and paper creations!
Collage Fabric Painting - Friday, March 6th
Students will learn techniques to create their own custom designed fabric. Layering the applications of color, texture, design will be covered. Instruction will also be given on how to create foam stamps and using found objects for printing. The one of a kind designed fabric will then be used to create a no-sew wallet.
Ripped, Peeled, and Dripped Paper Relic Collage - Saturday, March 7th
Students will create a canvas wall art collage. Techniques will be step by step, allowing students to build up textures and interesting designs. If you like ripping, peeling back layers, and random application of paint, then this class is for you.
Fiber Art Tapestry - Sunday, March 8th
Students will learn a layering technique that incorporates both fabric and paper. Each student will go home with a small sampler incorporating embroidery and lots of texture.
Pretty awesome stuff, huh!
