Treasures of the Deep
Led by Angela McIntyre
Create an embellished seascape garden in this 3-part class. Learn how to create a freeform background for any landscape quilt, adding depth with sheer fabrics and layered stitching. We will also create hand painted fabrics to use as elements in our seascape, learn some basics in fabric painting for shadows and highlights, machine quilting, free-motion cutaway appliqué, two types of yarn couching, and hand beading and embellishment. Plus discussion and demonstration of creative binding techniques with stitching and decorative yarns, and various methods and materials to incorporate into your art quilts.
There will be a $20 kit fee, payable to Angela in class. The kit includes handouts, Angelina fibers, two types of cheesecloth, three types of textile paint, decorative yarn and some beads and embellishments to get you started, cording for binding, and a few accent sheer fabrics.
