Blue Coneflower
Saturday/Sunday, August 17 & 18, 2019

Cost $120.00 – Limited Seating – Call Now To Reserve Your Spot!

 Kit fees are $20 per person.
Kits will include the use of all my paints, fabric, wadding and backing to do your project.

Description:
I created this workshop a few years ago and most people are amazed at how easy it is to create their own piece of art from a white piece of fabric and some paints. The coneflowers are actually painted on making this a whole cloth design. I explain how to use the textile paints and non-textile paints in this process and also show the students how to divide up your background area and create some real interesting designs on their art piece.

This workshop is great for those wanting to learn new techniques and skills in textile arts. You will learn how to paint onto the fabric to create a nice background as well as the foreground picture of the cone flowers. You will also learn some basic quilting techniques and thread work, and to top it off you get to play with some bobbin work.

 

 

 

After The Fire
Monday/Tuesday, August 19 & 20, 2019

Cost $120.00 – Limited Seating – Call Now To Reserve Your Spot!

Kit fees are $20 per person.
Kits will include the use of all my paints, fabric, wadding and backing to do your project.

Description:
This workshop has a lot of meaning to me as it is derived from an experience I had on my property 6 years ago. We had a bushfire locally that burnt through our property as well as many others. Luckily we were one of the lucky ones and our home and buildings were saved by the local fire brigade and helicopter water bombing. I noticed after the fire the damage the surrounding bushland had suffered as well as the amazing colors in the sky in the evening. This experience moved me to create this small art quilt, and then in turn teach people about the techniques I used in making it.

This workshop is great for those wanting to learn new techniques and skills in textile arts. You will learn how to mix their paints and how to apply them to fabric correctly. You will learn how to paint onto the fabric to create a nice background creating a starting point for your thread work. You will also learn some basic quilting techniques, thread work, and bobbin work.
