Caroline Sharkey is coming to do a 2 day workshop called "Landscape Sewing Techniques" at KATES SEWING CENTRE
Colour, Texture and Pattern.This workshop starts off with a smaller central design to set the theme and individual style of the quilt.
Adding borders to extend this and exploring shapes and symbols to represent and develop the possible cultural aspect. The central design can be off set for an individual styled point of view.
Bring along landscape ideas and fabrics relating to these images and drawings, also printed patterned fabrics that have interesting designs to cut shapes from.
Learn to build a surface with many different layers and stitching that enhances the finished quilt top.
Chop fabrics like you have never before and stitch them together to create new and interesting textures.
Thread paint and free machine drawing will add those final touches to your Art quilt.
