Layered Fabric Assemblage



Layered Fabric Assemblage with Vicki Assegued

November 17 – 19, 2022 | Thursday – Saturday | Theatre Studio

Times – Thurs. 1 – 5 pm | Fri & Sat 10 am – 5 pm

Medium – Fiber/Mixed Media

All Levels of experience are welcome.

Learn many techniques for creating a truly unique and stunning art piece, with multiple layers and textures of fabric. Create a base, covered with beautiful overlays of fabric, surrounded by shapes that extend outward, giving the piece added shape, dimension, and excitement. The final piece will hang on the wall. No sewing involved. Perfect for beginning through advanced artists.

Enrolled students are invited to attend my presentation at the Verde Valley Weavers & Spinners Guild meeting at the Sedona Arts Center starting at 11 am on Thursday morning, November 17 before the workshop begins. It will also be in the Theatre Studio, the same room where the workshop will take place.  There will be a break between the presentation and the workshop, so you will have time for lunch.

For me, art is life, and every aspect of the creative process is metaphorical and pertinent to everything else I do and all that I am. I look at the world around me as a grand and glorious art piece, and everything within it as a possible object to include in my art. Through the making of art, my inner world manifests into the outer world, bringing my vibrant spirit into form, in order to share the beauty of life with the vibrant spirits of others.

I work with fiber art, collecting second-hand clothing, placemats, pillowcases, lace, crochet, trims, belts, yarn, string and other fiber and fun objects. I so enjoy finding what is precious and possible in these materials that were once considered disposable, unimportant, uninteresting or lacking in value. I am continually experimenting with these materials, finding new ways to layer, weave, tie, attach and arrange them to create dynamic pieces. I hope my work will inspire others to make art from the objects in their lives, to look at the world around them as full of creative possibilities.

One of my greatest joys with my art process is to teach my techniques to others and support them to create their own stunning and unique masterpieces. I love giving people the gift of new skills and tools for expressing themselves, creating their own beauty and then sharing their artwork with the people in their lives. I offer individual and group workshops, both in person and online. I strive to have my workshops, and my artwork itself, inspire others to explore their own artistic self, and to enjoy the immense delight of the creative process and outcome.

I can also create commissions for you, customized by color, space size, theme and design requests. I can use my fabrics and/or any fabrics that hold sentimental or aesthetic value for you, such as clothing, table cloths, curtains, buttons, accessories, jewelry parts, and other treasured items.

I also work in the field of Restorative Justice and Conflict Resolution, where I have the honor of facilitating meetings that bring about incredible transformation and healing for those involved. This concept of transformation is also reflected in my artwork, where I re-purpose materials in order to manifest this desire to bring out the beautiful possibilities of change, even when it isn’t apparent at first glance.

The creative process itself is absolutely magical to me, how we’ve been given these gifts to recognize the potential of the world around us, and to turn some of what we see into an innovative expression of what can be, of who we are, and of our mutual humanity around inspiration and beauty.I have always felt a sense of being a conduit for the creative process to move through. I am deeply grateful for this experience, which fills my life with constant excitement and inspiration.
