This creative workshop utilises fine art techniques to hand colour fabric using heliographic fabric paints and laser cut stencils and hand colouring with fabric pens. ‘Quilt as you go’ technique with cut away, raw edge applique technique (using crystal organza) and thread painting are demonstrated, with free machine quilting to finish this piece. Students will each create a sample of heliographic stencil / fabric. Students may select their own colour schemes and will develop a quilt 22 x 16 inches in size.A $20 materials fee (payable at the workshop) provides stencils and paints to sun print the tree and bird that is then machine quilted and machine embellished. On day 1 you will learn to use Heliographic fabric sun paints to produce their piece and will make additional samples. These will then be used as machine quilting samples on the 2nd day. A set of coloured teaching notes is included.
