Project Description

One Day Workshop

    • Students use a hand dyed or commercial background and will be provided with a choice of designs.
    • Design will be overlaid onto quilt sandwich and quilted through using walking foot and free motion quilting techniques. This is a great opportunity to try free motion quilting even if you have never done it before. Suits all levels of quilters.
    • Quilted design will then be painted to create an interesting panel suitable for a cushion or centrepiece of a larger quilt.

Two Day Workshop

    • Students will be provided with a selection of surface design tools including fabric paints, stencils, stamps and silk screens to create a variety of original fabric
    • Fabrics will be stitched into a simple collage background which will then be used as the background as for the one day workshop.
