Using the colours and patterns of the landscape we will create an original design highlighting the contours of the land.
Contour lines delineate the gradient of the land and allow us to project wonderful movement and contrast into our design.
The techniques outlined in this class will allow us to make these contours a feature. Focal point, perspective and other basic design principles will be discussed then students will design their own wall hanging working from a photo, sketch or picture.
Students will be guided through a process that involves cutting and fusing the contours, then building up the areas on the batting. Quilting will add further dimension and texture. Fabric painting techniques will be demonstrated and participants will be able to hand paint fabric for special areas Eg sky, sea etc.
