Artistic Quilting Surface Design Techniques

Artistic Quilting Surface Design Techniques

February 13, 2015; 1pm - 4pm

Class Size:

This surface design “play and work” shop will feature three easy surface design techniques. Enid will demonstrate the three techniques to add original designs to fabric and even paper projects. After demonstrations, participants will have the chance to create their own samples, experimenting with provided materials. 

With Really Reusable Silk Screens, students will create a small organza silk screen that can be used for printing multiple images with only a few materials. The screens can be used repeatedly if they are gently washed and dried between print sessions. 

Glue Resist Fabric Painting is a process similar to batik without the trouble of melting wax and mixing dye. It requires some drying time, so small sample practice pieces will be available for participants to paint. 

Adding Text to Fabric art is foolproof with scrapbooking stickers and fabric paint.  Stickers and fabric will be available to make an individual postcard size piece that can be finished.

Participants can expect to take home three sample fabric pieces using the learned techniques.

This class is part of the Northern Fibers Retreat. Please see our events page here for more information: Northern Fibers Retreat.

The class will be cancelled on Monday, February 9, 2015, if minimum enrollment has not been met. Please register before this date.
