Betty Busby’s Multi Media Fiber
For several years I have been exploring the use of various non woven materials in my fiber art.
They have been a wonderful addition to traditional fabrics, extending the range of expression that can be achieved.
The class will include samples of different types of non woven materials, ways to produce images with them, and methods to incorporate them to extend the range of expression that can be achieved with traditional fabrics.
We will also explore the use of an electric cutting machine (Cameo) to cut the non wovens into finely tuned shapes.You will learn how to draw a pattern from scratch, put it into the cutter software, and adjust the settings on the machine to produce results that are useable in many applications.
In addition, I have developed new ways of painting fabrics.Students can make samples using my methods and materials, and combine them with the non wovens as desired.
I am also more than happy to assist students with making their own designs and patterns.
The aim of the class is to give each student many exciting ideas to experiment with.
