The Ghost Ranch Education and Retreat Center presents the workshop: Wearable Art
Monday, July 29 - Sunday, August 4, 2013
The Loose Threads class will be creating a collage vest with a variety of fabrics — 100% cotton is preferable with plaid, solids and floral prints, drapery fabric prints, velvets, silks or vintage fabrics is also doable. To add interest to our canvas we will be breaking the rules of matching top thread to bobbin, stitching backwards and forward and moving randomly through your garment. This course will be part of the Ghost Ranch Creative Arts Festival.
