In this workshop, you will first learn how to paint images with Procion dyes on cotton. Learning to control the dyes will be emphasized. Among other things, we will cover blending, layering, special effects and painting without bleeding. All of these techniques can be used to create images a complex as portraits or as simple as a line on a scarf. We will explore new ideas about how to use quilting to enhance the look of your painted cloth. The main objective is to use quilting lines to create depth, texture, tension, or shadowing which will give a new dimension to your quilt. The workshop is based on free-motion machine quilting but the design techniques can be adapted to hand quilting. Experience in machine quilting or hand quilting is required.
Additional $40 Supply Fee (not included in workshop fee) is required and payable to Hollis on 1st day of class, July 6, 2018. Please come prepared.
Registration Starts: April 7, 2018
