Sew Happy Color -- Fabric Painting + Color Theory Workshop with Katie Kortman
You may know her as the woman who loves color and posing with fruit -- often with one leg up! We're very excited to be hosting Katie Kortman for a Color Theory + Fabric Painting Workshop. Katie Kortman is an artist, sewist, textile designer, and mother of 4. If you're on Instagram and not following her -- head there now and follow. You will not be disappointed!
Katie will explore color schemes with participants and show them how to apply them in their wardrobe through hands-on activities and her own clothing examples. Participants will then learn how to paint fabric with Jacquard Textile Paint. Katie will teach students about repeats and various methods of applying the paint to fabric to create different effects. Students will then sew their painted fabric into a t-shirt of their choice.
This is a one-day workshop on September 21st from 10am-5pm. We will break for about an hour for lunch. Workshop is limited to 8 students.
