How to Do Silk Fusion with Tamara Leberer
(Show 1901) Tamara Leberer started her fiber arts exploration learning knitting, embroidery and sewing before settling on quilting. Her journey introduced her to other fibers, and though her early quilting was traditional, she was inspired by many other fabrics and wanted to work with them. Her quilting has transitioned into silk fusion, a process that binds silk fibers into a material that resembles felt, though it can be whisper-thin or as thick as leather. Tamara teaches you the process for making silk fusion (and the tools needed), and includes both Alex and Ricky in her demo. She shows how to work carefully with the wisps of silk roving (slightly twisted strands). Tamara shows you how to fill in your design, and how to work with any negative spaces.
