This unique method bonds silk fibers into a lustrous kind of "felt" which can be gossamer and transparent or thick and opaque as leather. Because the fibers are unspun, silk's rich luster and texture are captured. Silk fusion is a perfect canvas for hand or machine stitching, printing, stamping, origami, quilting, jewelry, wearable art, book coverings, and collage.
There are two sessions to this class. The Silk Fusion takes approximately 15-24 hours to dry so the first day we will lay out your individual Silk Fusion. The second day when the silk is dry, you will learn to fuse it. Additionally we will have a small pre-made silk fusion applique to work. For the applique you will work with a pre-made piece of Silk Fusion so you understand how if behaves and workability.
I have lots of colors and fun embellishments, Angelina, Sari Silk Fibers, Funky Silk Fibers, and ribbons/yarns available to add to your piece. This is the really fun part! If you have any items (such as fun yarn) for embellishments please bring them!
