Fabric Manipulation by Amanda Whited
In this Fabric Manipulation Workshop, you’ll explore the transformative artistry within textiles. Join artist Amanda Whited as you learn three diverse hand-stitching techniques and build the skills to make a personalized lumbar pillow cover using your design composition that perfectly complements your home and personal style. From the ancient craft of smocking to contemporary techniques like gathering and tucking, this workshop is your gateway to the world of three-dimensional textile art.
This workshop was designed with ample room for hands-on exploration and play with manipulating fabric. Choose from an array of techniques to craft a skill-sampler pillow cover using your practice pieces. As a bonus, we’ve supplied additional materials, encouraging you to keep making and extending these new fabric manipulation techniques to embellishing tote bags, clothing, and much more.
Here’s a sneak peek:
