Featuring: Susan Lenz / Judy Simmons

Posts On: November 23, 2015

Trailer


Susan Lenz began working full-time as an artist in 2001, and she shares the fears she conquered regarding her work. Susan uses grave rubbings, antique textiles and buttons prominently in her art, which she creates to honor the memory of an object or a moment in time. She uses the rubbings to give a second life to a person whose memory may have been lost. Susan shares her technique, as well as the etiquette involved in obtaining grave rubbings. She shows how to heat and set the work, and then embellish and quilt it. A second technique involves created stained glass-like fabric pieces using synthetic fibers, a soldering tool and a heat gun. The results are surprising! She also discusses her global thread art installation. Also included is a visit with Judy Simmons, who uses Shiva Paintstiks to add realistic shading and depth to her quilts.
