Two and three day on-site workshops with renowned quilting educators provide adults of varying skill levels the opportunity to learn new skills.
In this workshop, you will learn how to paint images with Procion dyes on cotton from instructor Hollis Chatelain. Learning to control the dyes will be emphasized. Among other things, we will cover blending, layering, special effects, and painting without bleeding. All of these techniques can be used to create images as complex as portraits or as simple as a line on a scarf. Additionally, we will explore new ideas about how to use quilting to enhance the look of your painted cloth. The main objective is to use quilting lines to create depth, texture, tension, or shadowing which will give a new dimension to your quilt.
This workshop will be held May 30 - June 1, 2019 in the classrooms at the National Quilt Museum.
