Playing with Fabric Paints – Building Layers

Are you ready to play, experiment and have fun? In this class we will sample transparent, opaque and metallic fabric paints while exploring techniques for creating original fabric designs. Emphasis will be placed on creating cohesive compositions while building layers of pattern. We will start by using found objects and then add to our toolbox of techniques as the week progresses. Activities will include creating your own stamps, working with silkscreens, batiking with soy wax, exploring Gelli plate monoprinting and more. An introduction to color mixing and daily color exercises will be included.

Instructor Bio:

Kevin Womack is a textile artist living in Lynchburg, Virginia. While majoring in the sciences at James Madison University, he satisfied his strong interest in the arts by including several elective art courses as part of his studies. Kevin earned his bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and went to work in the IT field. He continued his artist pursuits, exploring photography, metals/jewelry, pottery and oil painting in community art classes.
In 1986, Kevin was introduced to quilting by his maternal grandmother. Having always loved the legacy of family quilts, he decided to have her teach him the tradition. While his interest in other media has waned, his passion for fiber has endured. Over the years, Kevin studied with many accomplished textile artists and developed a love for hand dyeing and patterning fabrics with surface design techniques. His experiments produce a line of unique fabrics and clothing that he exhibits and sells.
Kevin’s artwork and quilts have been exhibited at several local and regional shows. His recent collaborative work with artist Eleanor McCain was selected for inclusion in the Quilt National ‘13 exhibition and Quilt Visions Biennial 2014. In addition to his fabric business, Kevin teaches and lectures nationally.
