art Quilt Workshops

All workshops can be customized to each particular group's wishes.  Workshops can be either one full day (6 hours) or two days (two 6 hour days).  Workshop fees are $400.00 for a single day, or $600.00 for two consecutive single topic days, plus travel.  



Thread Painting

 Charlie is done with thread painting on fabric.  For this 2 day workshop, students choose a photograph (not larger than 5" x 7" preferably), printed out onto a commercially available ink jet fabric, and cover with free motion embroidery by machine.  Sandra will bring a collection of machine embroidery thread to help fill in color gaps for student use.  Learn how to make very realistic images suitable for a quilted wall hanging or framing.  Thread paint your own pet if desired!

For a single day workshop, students will work on a small image (about 4" x 6"), with fewer thread color changes.

Fused Raw Edge Art Quilts from photographs

Students learn the basics of making raw edge quilts from photographs.  Students can choose to work from a prepared pattern, see the Waterlily image, or bring in their own enlargements to work from instead.  This can be a one or two day workshop.
