Let’s Paint A Quilt: Exploring with Textile Paints
September 29, 2019 – October 5, 2019
During this workshop students will paint, play, explore and sew one or two quilt tops. Using Pro Chem’s Textile Paints and canvas, along with fabric you bring from home, you will create work that portrays an idea from within. Discussions include how one piece/idea leads to another, how to “listen” to what your work is telling you, and a review of basics on composition and design. The instructor will share samples of her work. Through constructive criticism, participants will review the finished results individually and as a group, establishing a way to be objective about your work and the work of others. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
