Recently, I took a workshop with Laura Wasilowski It was great fun – she has a wonderful sense of humour. We worked with kits made up of her gorgeous hand dyed fabrics and thread. With these we set out to create our very own “Tiny Homes”.
Laura explained how to make elements by free hand cutting into the fabric. Multiple elements can be fuse tacked together to create more intricate pieces.
These small units are then used to create your piece.
I don’t have my piece completed yet. I think I need a few more elements before I decide on the final layout. Once the pieces are all fused in place, the details are added with the hand dyed perle cotton.
Even though I didn’t complete my piece, I graduated with a degree in Architecture from the Chicago School of Fusing!
Of course, I couldn’t leave without a few pieces of her beautiful fabric and thread to take home for my stash! You can see some of the colours she hand dyes on her website.
