About the workshop:
“From Photo to Fabric” Since the invention of the camera in mid 1800’s to the present artists have gone beyond the mechanics of making an image. Today our phones can as much as with a basic photograph as a painter can with canvas. Margaret will provide an overview of using and manipulating digital images in the context of the art quilt. She will demonstrate several easy applications to transform any snapshot.
“My process starts with a digital image. I use photo manipulation software to enhance or create a new composition. The digital file is sent to a commercial fabric printer. When the fabric arrives in my studio, I use a variety of materials including dyes, pigment sticks and paints directly on the cloth. As I quilt through the cloth, batting and backing; I am drawing with thread to create a rich and visually exciting work of art.”
