Upcoming Fiber Arts Classes
Fiber Arts Department
Instructor: Linda V. Hubbard
They will explore several stitching techniques that can be used as surface embellishment on fabric. They will begin with free-motion basics then move on to Thread Sketching and Thread Painting exercises using simple shapes and designs. Next, they will learn about Textural Stitching (to use as surface enhancement), “Dimensional Stitching” (to define or emphasize shapes and create light and shadow) and play with “Structural Stitching” using a dissolvable substrate, in order to create unique, open, threadwork, which can be “fabric-like” or architectural. Finally, each will create a small Fiber Art project of their choice using one or more of these stitching techniques.
Students must know how to sew before taking this class.
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Linda is a resident of Benicia, California, and has been a member of Arts Benicia for many years. She has been juried into many of their exhibits and was selected as one of the artists to exhibit in their nation-wide open-call textile show this summer, “Thread Count”. Last summer she was featured guest artist at the Blackhawk Gallery in Danville, California. In March, she was selected to participate in the annual “Material Matters” exhibit at the Seager Gray Gallery in Mill Valley.
Fiber Art in Linda’s view is constantly evolving as more techniques are developed and more rules are broken which will result in more exciting artworks to come.
