A proper road trip includes discovering backroads in the countryside and plenty of chocolate! Let’s hit the trail and create some special landscapes using painted fabric and stitch. We will experiment with lots of mark-making techniques to add acrylic paint onto fabric. And we’ll touch on some basic design principles to plan the collages. Your personal stash of painted fabrics, snipped and layered onto background fabrics, will come to life with the addition of some free-motion or hand stitches.

Materials Fee $35  paid at beginning of class includes:

I will provide everything that you need to create some magical landscapes including a wide assortment of fabrics, lace, ribbon, acrylic paint, watercolor paper, and tools for your use in class. (And chocolate, of course!)

Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:

An art apron or old clothes
Fabric and paper scissors
