Description

Explore methods for creating three-dimensional fiber art with quilt artist Barbara Schneider. Focusing particularly on two techniques that she developed in creating her Leaf Series, Barbara guides viewers step-by-step through her process for creating shaped textile artwork in this exciting workshop video.

Starting with an introduction to her work, Barbara shares thoughts on inspiration—specifically the way her work is influenced by the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi (finding beauty in things that are imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete). Next, Barbara shares her fabric collage technique, which includes creating the template, layering fabrics, adding sheer overlays to create the effect of shading and texture, and toning with colored pencils. Also included in this section is a stitching demo in which Barbara shows her process for creating the veins, whorls, and marks on her pieces.

The second design technique covered in this video is the digital printing process Barbara uses for other pieces. Then Barbara demonstrates how to bring the pieces to life by shaping them so they catch the light and become three-dimensional. She also demonstrates cutting techniques to create lacy effects and serrated edges. Finally, Barbara shares examples of her finished artwork, including leaves, pods, and vessels.

Prepare to be inspired to create textile art with undulating sculptural surfaces that capture light and shadow in this inspirational Quilting Arts Workshop™ video.

3D fiber art Review by Myriam Haar

this is a great workshop, extremely creative: it answered what I had always wanted to do in quilting, i.e. work in 3D. Barbara is an absolute genius regarding fiber art, she's good at teaching us her secrets in an easy approach to what might seem daunting at first, while actually it is quite easy to realize. I'm passionate about leaves: their shapes, colours, and texture have always attracted me. But to be able to make some of these leaves life-size opened up a new dimension for me. I love her workshop and recommend it for those who are looking for something totally different in the fiber art department. The only disappointment came while inspecting her own leaves on her wall and realizing that she doesn't describe how she created her leaves' veins, nor does she explain how to finish the edges of the leaves, although she mentions at some point not to worry too much about the edges, we are going to trim them; it felt like we're not going there because we're out of time. But I noticed that her leaves were neatly finished with either a zig-zag or satin stitch? That is a shame because we are left with an unfinished product and no idea how to create those veins to add more texture. All in all a great workshop that I enjoyed tremendously.
