First, Marcia Derse begins with techniques for painting fabrics with silk screening paints. Hand painting fabric creates intimate marks and layers of color. Then, we move to unique postcards with Marlene Glickman. They feature dyed sheers, silks, and collaged fabrics. Finally, we move to another method of fabric manipulation with Michele Muska and machine needle felting. She creates felted trees of roving, yarn, and wool onto a premade red tree skirt.
