Digital Fibers & Mixed Media
Wen Redmond, Instructor
Dates: August 16th – 18th, 2019 (9am-4pm)
Materials Fee: $45
Expand your vision of a digital print! Participants will be introduced to inkjet printing on fiber and mixed media substrates. The types of substrates that can be created are nearly limitless. Explore the possibilities! Based on Wen’s book- ‘Digital Fiber Art and Mixed Media Masterpieces’. The focus is on experimentation and construction of substrates! There are many ways to manipulate images, such as Photoshop, Gimp, Lightroom, Pic Monkey and the many app’s available today. Manipulating images is not the focus of this workshop. Have 5-7 images sized to 4×6 and ready to print. In fact, you could easily do this workshop with just one image!
Do bring a printer will enable you to print at your own pace. You could share with a couple people. If sharing printers, bring your photos on a tested USB stick to plug in their computer. Please familiarize yourself with your printer before class so set-up is smooth.
New England artist, Wen Redmond has been a fiber artist since 1976. She has worked with batik, weaving, and carries a love of art quilts. In the late 90’s, her work centered on abstract expressionism using dyed fabrics and surface design, creating gentle tonal contrasts and layers.
Since the early 2000, Wen has embraced digital technology, printing, transferring using fabric, paper or uniquely created original substrates. Wen’s photographs, artistically manipulated, combine an unusual use of fiber, painting and digital media into a one of a kind art pieces. She has been published widely in books and magazines, featured on Quilting Arts Television and has two available DVD workshops with Interweave Publishing. Wen’s book ‘Digital Fiber Art: Combine Photos & Fabric – Create Your Own Mixed-Media Masterpiece’ has been recently published.
