Fiber Art Journal with Tammy Kelly
Join instructor Tammy Kelly and learn to make a specially themed accordion fold journal filled with inspiring thoughts. Embellishment techniques may include watercolor, beading, dry embossing, thread painting, rubber stamping on velvet, beads and charms, ribbons and scraps, and tulle encasements. Creative expression is encouraged!
As part of the workshop cost, participants will be provided with a kit that includes most materials for the class. The kit will include binder’s board, batik fabric and interfacing for cover, tie or ribbon for closure, fibers and decorative papers to match and optional embellishments such as charms, beads and found items. Participants are encouraged to preselect a theme for their journals.
If participants have specific colors, sayings, quotes or verses they would like used in the book, they should contact the instructor at least two weeks prior to the workshop for typing or hand lettering instructions. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be connected with the instructor.
Students will need to bring scissors, a heavy book to be used as a weight, bone folder, clear ruler, and a pencil. Students may also find it helpful to bring a scoring tool for marking lines, basic sewing kit with needles and thread, small paper cutter, found items for embellishing, and large piece of foam core covered with contact paper for a work surface.
Date & Time
Saturday, May 30th from 9 am to 4 pm (with a one-hour lunch break)
About the Instructor
Tammy’s favorite design topic is COLOR! The fibers “talk” to her as she carefully chooses just the right color combination for each unique, individual piece. Her fiber art cards and journals are the result of an abundance of fibers, beads, and fabric.
She is inspired by patterns in nature, home décor, travel, and other artists. A view of the San Francisco Peaks from her studio in Flagstaff, Arizona also provides inspiration and time for reflection.
Tammy teaches fiber art and encourages her students of all ages to be creative with fabric selection and design. She also has a passion for publishing and sharing with others.
