If you are traveling, we will have 5 machines available to share.   If you live locally, please bring your machine and let us know so we can reserve the five for others!

What happens when you mix fabric paint with Inktense pencils or blocks... well magic of course! Have fun trying out a variety of fabric painting techniques while also learning a few little tricks and some good basics about form, shadow, highlights, color mixing, and composition. We will be working on a 12” x 12” painting that will be suitable for turning into a pillow top, bag or jacket panel, or simply mounted on to a canvas.

Materials fee $40 paid directly to instructor at beginning of class includes:

Printed instructions, patterns. fabric panel, freezer paper, fabric paints, use of Inktense pencils and blocks, foamcore paint boards, paint plates, tissues, misc.

Supplies You Need to Bring to Class in addition to materials provided by instructor:

 Apron or paint shirt
