Registration will open for 2019 on November 26, 2018
For several years Betty has been exploring the use of various non-woven materials in her fiber art. They have been a wonderful addition to traditional fabrics, extending the range of expression that can be achieved. The class will involve an explanation for different types of non-woven materials, ways to produce images with them and methods to incorporate them into art quilting. There will be hands on use of paints, templates and stencils using multiple techniques and will involve painting the non-woven material and a new technique not advertised yet. We then fuse the material, and cut it out to be used for decorative elements. Betty will provide patterns to be used as desired to incorporate various fabrics with the non-woven. The non-woven shapes are then paired with woven fabrics, which are trimmed to fit and can then be used to create a quilt top. Betty is also more than happy to assist students with making their own designs and patterns. The aim of the class is to give each student many exciting ideas and techniques to experiment with.
All classes include Full Breakfast, Lunch, Snacks and Beverages.
