Fiber Collage: 12 x 12

Georganne Roberts shows off a work-in-progress

I taught a fiber collage class a few weeks ago at the Southwest School of Art & Craft. I've been so busy, I didn't have time to download the photos until now. But even though it's old news, the collages came out so well, I wanted to show them off.

The class focused on creating a fiber collage on a 12 x 12 canvas. We covered a lot of territory over the two days. We started with some design and composition exercises to get everyone's creativity flowing. Then began the process of turning those compositions into collage with fabric.

We also played with several techniques for painting and embellishing the canvas, including screenprinting, using gel medium to add texture and adding texture with herbs and spices. (Check out the crushed red pepper on the edge of this piece.)

The finished or almost finished collages at the end of the second day were fabulous.
