Walk The Line With Hundertwasser
5 fabulous days online working online.
This is a great opportunity to celebrate the magic lines and color of Friedensreich Hundertwasser! We will take a close look at his much-admired works, and see how he made them sing with color and line. Discover how you can imbue your work with the vitality he achieved as you try several approaches to line and color in fabric, thread, and paper. After daily discussions and viewing of his work, you can do line studies on paper, then explore with fabric and thread to make several small pieces, or you can make one or two larger pieces. You can piece, fuse, and applique and stitch by hand and/or by machine.
