Join accomplished textile artist Kirsten Aune and learn her stenciling technique for fabric design while making a colorful patterned bird. Leave with lots of tips and knowhow to start your own textile creations. Students will learn how to cut stencils, learn about different inks, prepare fabric, and then print their own fabric designs.

Kirsten is known for her “Modern Scandinavian” aesthetic, and she creates original geometric and floral designs using stencils that she cuts by hand and then arranges in dynamic visual compositions using bright blocks of color and bold designs. Visit Kirsten’s website for more information about her work:

Materials to bring to class: please bring an apron or wear clothes that can get paint on them.

Note: Class will meet from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at 1718 W. 1st Street (Old firehall, brick building, above Gene’s Auto Body) for stenciling the fabric. After a lunch break from 12:00-1:00 pm, students will then meet at Kirsten’s brick-and-mortar location, “Kirsten Aune Textiles” at 12 N 21st Ave W, Duluth, MN 55806 from 1:00-2:00 pm for sewing the birds.
