Join Karen Straight as she teaches you a new skill, silk fusion. Students will be walked step-by-step through the process of making silk fusion and the many ways one can use it. Made from silk roving and other embellishment fibers, silk fusion is simple to make and adaptable to many fiber arts projects. Silk fusion can be cut, stitched, molded, and embellished. Use it to create mosaic tiles and stitch them to your art quilt. Cut and layer beautiful selections to make a unique wall hanging, card, or book cover. One can even mold silk fusion into an artful silk vase. Come and explore the possibilities of this wonderful art form!
Please note: This is a skill-building class. Students will not make the elk project featured in the photo. Instead, students will make silk fusion that they can use for their project. Silk fusion must dry overnight before it can be cut. Students will not be able to cut their silk fusion during the class, but they will learn how to remove it from the screen and utilize it in projects.
