Ten steps to expand your creative ideas and tips to get them down on paper. Clear easy to follow steps to produce a weavable design in the form of a tapestry cartoon. Design would be suitable to apply to quilting, wearables, and other art forms that use embellishments.

Most fiber artists can draw a design and color it in. This elementary approach eventually leads to frustration that the work does not reflect the complicated nature of the craft. This workshop will explore principles of art and design to get your idea on paper and ready to weave, as well as hands-on exercises of creative thinking, design choices and the use of color to get mature, finished designs. It’s time to move beyond coloring-book-look to personal expression.
