Light up your Landscape
Class Description - 2 day class
Light is one of the most powerful tools that an artist can use in a composition. Fusing small squares, rectangles or diamonds of fabric, students can build up a landscape background that is full of light, contrasts and drama. In this class, design principles including perspective and focal point will be outlined and a variety of colour schemes will be displayed and discussed. Participants will then design their own wall hanging working from a photos, sketch or picture. Fusing, invisible machine appliqué, free motion stitching and quilting techniques will be included. This workshop is suitable for new and experienced quilters with patterns and hand dyed and painted fabrics available in class.
Class Description - 5 day class
Participants will work through a short series of colour exercises and have the opportunity to paint fabric for some of their background and foreground elements. The first project, a colour exercise, will be a small scene where the pattern will be provided. Then participants will move on to create a larger scene designing their own wall hangings, working from a photo, sketch or picture. Fusing, invisible machine appliqué, free motion stitching and quilting techniques will be included.
