Would you like to learn how to stencil fabrics for furnishing and fashion successfully? Then read on.
This was a very early 'stencilling on fabric' project of mine
and this one was recent
…in between, there have been many projects involving stencils and fabrics. This autumn I will be teaching a new half day class called ‘How to stencil fabric’ I will teach it for IDAL, the Decorative Artisans League at their convention at Greensboro, North Carolina on October if you sign up before Sept they offer a discount. My other class is in the UK, it will be a rehearsal class hosted at The Stencil Library; See details at the end of this post.
After mastering these stencil skills you can decorate tents,
bedcovers and kimonos,
outfits AND more outfits and more cushions!!! I will host a rehearsal class at The Stencil Library in Northumberland it runs from 1.00pm until 5.00 on the afternoon of Saturday, 30/09/2017 Telephone email or leave a comment if you would like to be there. The price reflects that it is a rehearsal to test the projects and timing before the class joins our regular offering of courses and before it reaches my students in the USA. Price 60.00 includes refreshments and all materials needed on the day. Two fabric projects and a set of stencils are yours to take home
HOW TO STENCIL FABRIC SUCCESSFULLY 4 hours. All skill levels from beginner to advanced
Add a new dimension to your decorative skills with stencilled fabric. No ladders or scaffold involved! Stunning results can be achieved on curtains, soft furnishings and clothing. Color matches for interiors can be achieved with ease allowing another dimension to your decorative work. The set of stencils provided to students will be suitable for many projects not just for fabric. The mechanics of the project apply to wall, furniture and floor finishes too.
The stencil on fabric class will involve mitring corners, measuring, making panels, repeating pattern, colour blending and the use of metallic with matt paint. We will practice on both dark and light backgrounds. Preparation of cloth will be discussed as well as paints, mediums and technique. We will stencil onto two different fabrics; one will be velvet because it is one of the more
difficult materials to decorate; one will be a ready made cushion cover. By the end of the class, students will have learned and practised my techniques for stencilling cloth. They should understand which media, colours and method work well for different fabric.
