NOTE: Sewing machine experience required. If you are traveling, we will have 5 machines available to share. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you live locally, and can bring your machine so we can reserve the five for others!
The lowly tea bag, when dried and emptied, becomes the foundation for a precious piece of art. Each tea bag will be enhanced with a collage using hand–painted papers provided for you. The addition of free-motion machine and hand stitching will unify your collection of tiny tea bags, and when combined will become a wondrous Art Quilt.
$30 Materials/Kit Fee paid to instructor at beginning of class includes:
one dozen tea bags (dried, prepped, and fused), background fabrics, a wide assortment of collage papers hand-painted by Libby, matte medium, Mistyfuse, embroidery threads, and use of tools and additional supplies.
Students should bring
an art apron, scissors, and, if possible, a sewing machine if you have one that has free-motion capability. There will be several sewing machines for the class to share.
Many of the required supplies may be pre-ordered from Artistic Artifacts. They will be ready and waiting for you to pick up when you arrive at the retreat. To order supplies, contact Artistic Artifacts.
