Fabric, Paper, Paint & Stitch
Full Day Workshop

Thursday, October 17, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Fabric and paper have their own unique looks—combine them to take advantage of each. Even simple tissue paper or old book pages can add a unique look and texture to a fabric collage. In the morning, create your own colors and designs on fabric and paper with easy techniques using paint, stencils, stamps and more. In the afternoon, make a small collage quilt using those painted fabrics and papers. Along the way learn about color and design. No experience needed—painting and stitching techniques are so easy that anyone can do them. You’ll do some hand stitching in class and can add more stitching by hand or machine at home. All levels.
