    9 a.m. - 4 p.m.Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, Gaitlinburg, TN

Learning both wet-work techniques like image transfer on fabric with acrylic medium, manipulation/creation of textile patterns and stenciling with paint, as well as dry work with stitching, appliqué, embroidery and embellishing with traditional and alternative materials like photographs, Tyvek, and aluminum, participants will utilize the stretched canvas as a square/rectangular "embroidery hoop" to combine textile, painting and collage techniques. Open to all skill levels.
