Textile Totems with J. Michelle Watts

During class, Michelle will share a variety of different creative design ideas. She will discuss and demonstrate the basic layout and assembly process. In addition, she'll share some of her favorite decorative embellishments, including decorative machine stitches, quilting, beads, buttons, and yarns. And finally, she will demonstrate how to finish your wall sculpture and get it ready to hang. She'll have lots of photos and examples to share with everyone. Students will work on a single totem during class. 

This class will be held over Zoom
SUPPLY LIST for a 24? Totem Basic Sewing Supplies (pencil, scissors, paper) Rotary cutter, mat, and ruler Scrap fabrics or coordinating fabrics- At least 5 or 6 different fabrics. You can choose to work in a single-color family (my favorite is turquoise). A layer cake would work well because they all coordinate. I like using a variety of prints and textures. Scraps need to measure at least 1? x 9? long. Feel free to work with a theme, such as southwestern, modern, southwestern, monochromatic, floral, etc. 9? x 24? piece of cotton or cotton blend batting 3? x 23 ?? piece of felt (I like to use dark gray) Elmer?s Glue Spray Adhesive (optional) 1 ? 24? long 1x4 or 2x4 piece of wood (Home Depot has pre-cut pieces of wood available in 2ft, 3ft, 4ft lengths) You will probably have to ask where they are. They are at the back of the store by the wood cutting area in our Home Depot.
