Introducing Helen’s technique of Paintchwork….that is, painted not pieced patchwork working with luminous acrylic fabric paints.
Day 1. chose from 20 designs for your own Flying Into Colours wall hanging 50 x 70cm. Helen will demonstrate how to trace and then paint and combine colours to blend painted ribbons and Paintchwork onto black fabric.
Day 2 with Helen’s expert guidance, booklet of Free-Motion designs and lots of demonstrating, students will enhance their piece with a wide variety of free-motion quilting styles to complement their work. Students will then paint again, this time into their free-motion stitching, enhancing and adding so much life and energy into their individual and unique work.
This class is a lot of fun and very exciting as student’s gain confidence in painting and in free-motion and their work comes to life in full colour!
