Digital Explorations in Fiber & Mixed Media"Based on Wen's book- "Digital Fiber Art: Combine Photos & Fabric - Create Your Own Mixed-Media Masterpiece"
"Every workshop has some element of how to, but when I teach, I encourage my students to let go into the process and get into the ‘flow; to relax into making marks, creating color mixes, lines, or prints.”
Her new book Digital Fiber Art and Mixed Media is now available! Check Amazon or her studio blog for personally autographed copies. here
