Virtual Workshop

Happy Villages

Karen Willingham

May 3, 2023

9:30 AM-3:30 PM CDT

Registration Feb 3 for members,  Mar 19 for non-members


Explore the freedom of fabric collage! No seams to piece or match, no lines to trace ... Just free form cutting of step and window shapes. Step by step your little village will magically come to life.  Finished size 16 1/2 inch square. 

Karen says "Since I was a little girl I have always felt the need to create. I consider myself a serious “doodler” – pencil in hand, I just love making lines and patterns. Color had always intimidated me, because I didn’t enjoy the mess of mixing paints and I didn’t have the color confidence to select the right colors. Fabric was a welcome relief to my dilemma– colors came already “pre-mixed” – no color charts, no mess, no fuss AND I  could work with them anywhere in the house. I do love painting on fabric now, which I happily cut up and use in my fabric art."
