Workshops offered by speaker:

Tape, Texture and Textile Paint

September 7, 2024 at 5:00:00 PM

Learn how to use ProChem textile color concentrate pigments to design fabric for your work by painting, texturing, and stamping using a variety of tools. Cotton canvas and two sheets of Printmaking paper will be provided. Instructor has available ten workshop-style aprons at a cost of $10.00 each. Students who would also like to design on one will pay the additional fee. Instructor needs a count in advance. Students are free to bring other fabrics to sample. These fabrics should be white or a light value, and solid rather than prints.



Bars, Beads and Drizzle

September 6, 2024 at 5:00:00 PM

Use your machine’s zigzag stitch to create satin stitch bars, beads and drizzle. See how effective the drizzle technique lends itself to appliquéing sheer fabrics that are otherwise difficult to handle. Drizzle stitching creates strong texture across fabric and can be painted for another effect. Students will work with stars, hearts, and/or circles cut with AccuQuilt templates provided by the instructor. Plus bonus topic of making your own cord!
