If you are at all interested in doing 3D work, take a look at Barbara's class:

2929 | Shape UP! Improvisational Fabric Forming
This unique two-day workshop explores various techniques for adding dimension to fiber work allowing for the play of light, shadow and texture. Learn how to use stiffeners, texture forming substrates, and heat sensitive materials among others. Come willing to experiment and play, as many samples will be made during the workshop rather than focusing on a specific project. The samples will guide you in exploring more on your own. Some supplies included, please see SSA website for a list of additional supplies. For more images of Schneider's work, visit her website, Please bring a lunch both days. Please register by Oct 22.
