Using Value For Realism – Rhino Head

For any of my classes YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE ABLE TO DRAW. I have never done art and I cannot draw.

It would be helpful if you already know how to use fusibles and have done my beginners’ class but this is not essential. In the end you will have to sew every individual piece down so you also need to know your sewing machine well!

– This is a technique class. We are making a rhino head because it is achievable in the 2 days.
– The rhino head will be based on my photo and associated patterns that I will supply.
– The finished piece will be about 12″ X 12″.
– I will supply detailed notes on the process.
– On day one we will learn about colour value and make the collage, and on the second day we will go over the sewing, the details and the finishing.
– It is much easier if you do NOT try to make a realistically coloured rhino the first time. It is much easier to make one in red or blue or green or grey or purple. Yellow and orange are much harder to work with so do not bring these colours.

You will probably not have a finished rhino at the end of the two days but you will have the instructions needed to complete it.
