Jean Herman – Collage as an Art Technique
Jean is a fiber, mixed media artist from Denver, Colorado. She has been working and refining this technique in her art quilts over the past eight years. Jean has had several one woman shows and has shown her work at Visions Museum, where her piece ‘Katherine a la Picasso” won “The 2014 Brakensiek Caught Our Eye Award” and her piece “Krishna Brings the Rain” took 2nd place at The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum Evolutions 2012 Show. She has created several series using this collage technique as a medium of choice. You can look at her work on her web site, Jean Herman.
Jean is a past president and avid member of FRCQ. In her workshops Jean openly shares her artistic eye to teach you to create beautiful compositions. Her workshops are very popular and we are proud to present this workshop to our members.
About this Workshop:
Anyone can enjoy this workshop, whether you have ever done any quilting or not. Jean makes sure everyone has fun and learns. You will learn composition and color selection and find out how this technique can be applied; whether you have been making art quilts for years or are totally inexperienced.
Day One: Jean will teach you how to use her collage technique to create your art quilts. Free yourself from patterns, Misty Fuse, Steam a Steam, and Wonder Under; just create work in cloth freely and see how your design and ideas flow in a new way. Learn how to use large blocks of fabric to create your composition using a design board and pins. Once a composition is blocked in you will use gel medium and small pieces of various fabrics to create your new collage piece.
Day two: Bring your sewing machine and finish your piece. You will learn how choosing the best stitching motif will enhance your finished piece. The teacher will provide gel medium, cheap scissors, brushes, fabric paint, boxes of scrapes and other fabrics to share.
