    • 23 Jun 2019
    • 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
    • Beach Art Center, 1515 Bay Palm Blvd, Indian Rocks Beach, FL

    Feed the Magpie

    Instructor: Susan Lumsden

    Date: June 23

    Time: 10:00 AM - 5 PM

    Indian Rocks Beach Art Center

    Fee: $70 (Includes Instructor fee - $45 + Kit Fee: $10 + IRBAC fee $15

    There are times your work just needs a bit of extra sparkle or something to jazz it up. Feed the Magpie gives you the tools/ techniques that allow you to create that extra

    sparkle to draw in the eye. Magpies like sparkly things. We’ll be working primarily with all things “metallic”.

    We will address multiple forms of shiny metallics ~ paints, foils, precious metal leaf, paint stiks/ stencils, metallic threads, metallic fabrics. It’ll be a sampler that you’ll

    take home samples you create while learning to tame these sometimes troublesome materials. The basic techniques can be used by any skill level and used to enhance existing skills.


    The kit  includes a yard of black cotton fabric and access to all the materials discussed. This will include several different metallic paints, lots of foils (you’ll get

    some to take home), all glues, fusibles. I’ll provide cutting mat and rotary cutter, irons, ironing surfaces, sponges, brushes, scrapers, tape, fusible materials, fabrics, metal leaf, foils, paints,


    Bring your own scissors for cutting up materials, a couple of small containers for water, paint etc., and additional fabrics to play upon. Your own teflon sheet (if you have- don’t go out

    and buy one, yet).

    Susan has been a sewist from the age of 5. In the mid 90s I finally got to focus on using my skills to create art. While mostly creating art quilts, I use fabric I’ve dyed as

    my primary creative material since 2000. I curated and traveled an international exhibition entitled Roots of Racism:Ignorance & Fear, that was created to get people

    talking about racism. As a part of its tour it was featured at the International Quilt`v Festival and five museums. The entire exhibition was the art in the American Embassy

    in Pakistan for 2 years as a part of the Art in Embassies Program via the US State Department. For several years I traveled the country doing juried art festivals and

    have had my work exhibited in many national and international shows. I even had a solo exhibition of my work in Paducah, KY during the famous Quilt Week. Two of my

    works have received national awards. My work is in many private, public and corporate art collections and I invite commissions. Most recently, my focus has included

    printmaking on fabric using my hand carved linocuts as well as teaching. I have an ongoing series that addresses the value of pollinators in our environment entitled, The

    Pollinator Project. I have been on the boards of 5 different, mostly art related non-profits as I believe in giving back to my community. More at /
