    all dayArrowmont School of Arts and Crafts

    This two-week class introduces students familiar with creating glass beads with flameworking to the basic techniques and concepts of handworked embellished textiles combined into cross-media artworks utilizing both. Participants will conceptualize, design and create their own flameworking and fibers artwork(s) that include beadmaking, hand-stitching and embellishing techniques on a textile surface. Flameworking techniques comprise color mixing and surface design, and constructing small sculpture forms. You will also utilize textile methods of hand-stitching, applique, embroidery and embellishing as well as textile artwork design, construction and presentation options. This course is a fantastic opportunity to combine the bright and shiny of handmade glass with the tactile surface design options of embellished textiles. Open to all skill levels, but some flameworking skills are helpful.
