Cloth Paper Scissors Create Retreat

I am so excited to share the news that I will be teaching two classes at Create! August 25-29 in Rosemont, IL (that's where O'hare airport is for all of you who will be flying)

Mixed Media Apron
6 hours, Saturday August 28

Using textile paints, gel medium and decorative printed images create a fun art apron to wear whenever you are in the mood for creating.

This class will be a lot of fun; collaging black and white and colored paper images, painting with textile paints, stitching details and embellishments on a cotton apron then sewing custom sized pockets to hold all your supplies while you work.

Tea & Ephemera Fabric Collage
3 hours, Sunday August 29

Using textile paint, printed paper vintage imagery, transfers, colored pencils, rubber stamps, paint sticks, tea bags and more, learn multiple mixed media techniques while creating a mixed media fabric collage that you can stitch or quilt.

We are going to play with so many techniques in this class and of course using tea bags as an element for adding and collaging imagery.

This is going to be such an amazing retreat with so many fantstic teachers, the ones I know about are: Kelli Nina Perkins, Melly Testa, Jane La Fazio, Alisa Burke, Jamie Fingal, Leslie Jenison, Jane Davila, Natalya Aikens and Beryl Taylor. You know just seeing this talented and fun line up, it is going to be a retreat not to be missed!


  1. Sounds like great fun and a wonderful collection of talented teachers. Wish I could make it, but I'm off on summer boating trips at that time! Hopefully this will be held again.


  2. This is really wonderful. I hope I can get into one of these. Tell me, how artistic need one be in order to participate?
    I hope all is well with you-this certainly is exciting.
    I'll shoot you an email. Liz

  3. Liz, please don't let the idea of needing to be "artistic" stop you. You will have fun creating and learning techniques, it is all about the process. I would love to have you in my classes!

    I will keep posting updates on the blog as classes get listed and enrollment starts.

  4. it's going to be sooo much fun!!

  5. I can't wait! I can't wait!!
