Sue Benner is well known for her large-format textile works which combine a painterly approach with a love of colour and fabric. This year she returns from Dallas, Texas, to give this much anticipated class.
Bold and expressive use of Procion MX dyes is the goal of this workshop. Sue teaches her layered painterly approach using direct application, mono-printing, and variations on mark-making techniques. Emphasis is placed on developing sophisticated colour combinations, using interesting tools, and adding touches of metallic and opaque fabric paints. Sue will share helpful hints, technical information, and the variations that have made her own work so successful.
Make your marks, brush your strokes, and record it all on fabric.
The student supply list is available here.
Sue Benner is an innovator in her field, creating original

collections. She also lectures and teaches workshops nationally
and internationally in the fields of surface design, textile collage, fused quilt construction, and artistic inspiration. Her work has been juried into Quilt National seven times, and she served as a juror in 2009. www.suebenner.com
