Tyvek surfaces adventure

July 2021 to book through 2sewtextiles.com

Weitere Informationen

Tyvek is a tear and water resistant material made out of polyethylene fibers. It can be painted very well and through heat treatment it takes on wonderfull shapes that can be easily worked by hand or with a sewing machine. For example, you can make individual cards or a small picture, decorate a book or photo album cover or work it into a small textile work. Together we will explore different ways of working with Tyvek: with the iron, with the heat gun and with the soldering iron. We will paint, cut, shrink, sew and machine embroider! It is very playful work and you can continue working and trying out during the afternoon.

Starting from treebarks as an inspiration, we are going to work on a small wallhanging and will learn through this, how to work with acrylic felt and painted bondaweb. Those materials will be free motion stiched and, with an embossing tool, melted into a treebark form. You can also use what you learn here for other works, that can be either abstract or from a real inspiration.
