Wave Rock - Mixed Media Landscape Quilts with Jennifer Horsford from Queensland
2 Day Workshop - Thursday 6th & Friday 7th July
Create beautiful landscapes like the ones pictured so that in turn you can apply this knowledge to create beautiful scenes of your own at home. This workshop is open to new students who will choose a scene or to those wishing to continue on with the kit they have already commenced.
Create a small scene with small painted pieces hand appliqued as features or focal points. Quilts shown, feature multiple techniques such as hand painted pieces, hand applique, textured backgrounds using Solvy and stitching which adds a third element of the design. Learn how to create a pattern to make your own designs and incorporate these techniques into your future creations. Bring your own fabrics and photos if you wish to change the colour and style of the purchased kit. Don’t worry about being new to these techniques, that’s what workshops are for, we are simply here to have fun and maybe learn some new things into the bargain. You are the master creator in this workshop so you may substitute different focal points or things of interest to you as the techniques you learn are easily transferred to other projects.
Please choose your option from Wave Rock. Rainforest, Whitehaven Beach or the Great Barrier Reef. If you are continuing from a previous workshop and do not require a kit please choose Continuance with or without sewing machine. If you are continuing you will require a sewing machine for 2 days.
