Show 1413 - From Film to Fabric: Photos as Inspiration

Featuring: Leni Levenson Wiener

Posts On: June 23, 2014


As a former commercial photographer, Leni Levenson Wiener still carries her camera with her everywhere, and her photos—particularly of strangers caught in ordinary moments—are a favorite inspiration for her fabric art. Now this talented author, instructor, and "artist's coach" visits the TQS studio to show how she evaluates and breaks down a composition for ease of construction, and discusses the importance of value and "zingers" when selecting fabrics. She also demonstrates how to create a more organic look with freehand cutting. Then enjoy our off-site visit with well-known fabric designer Jennifer Sampou, who took a seven-year hiatus to move with her family to Mexico, and has returned brimming with ideas for new designs, including her latest, Studio Stash.
