Explore the many uses and techniques of this inexpensive and versatile material for quilters, crafters and artists. What is Lutradur? Simply put, it’s the magic in the middle – a versatile cross between fabric and paper. It has the body of paper and the strength of fabric. The open, airy structure of Lutradur absorbs paint, ink, image transfers and more, to create a surface that filters light, yet has body and retains its shape. Lutradur is also thermoplastic, which means it changes when heated, producing the kind of organic and artistic effects fiber and mixed media artists love. It is an excellent surface to stitch, stamp, stencil, distress, embellish and more. Artists everywhere are continually finding new ways to craft art with Lutradur.


In this class, Lesley will show you a variety of techniques while creating a small sampler book. You will get a chance for hands on exploration of many of these techniques as well.  Lutradur can be used in your mixed media, bookmaking, textile work, quilting and more. It’s what you make it!
