About this Workshop:
Day One: Jean will teach you how to use collage to create your art quilts. Free yourself from patterns, Misty Fuse, Steam a Steam, and Wonder Under; just create work in cloth freely and see how your design and ideas flow in a new way. Learn how to use large blocks of fabric to create your composition using a design board and pins. Once a composition is blocked in you will use gel medium and small pieces of various fabrics to create your new collage piece.
Day two: Bring your sewing machine and finish your piece. You will learn how choosing the best stitching motif will enhance your finished piece. The teacher will provide gel medium, cheap scissors, brushes, fabric paint, boxes of scrapes and other fabrics to share.”
