Robyn Taylor
Fabric Mosaics
Creating a Portrait with fabric
Join Robyn as she demonstrates her popular class using an exciting technique. Make a portrait - with fabric! Start with a special photo. It is cropped, scanned and transferred to a numbered fabric grid. Choose your fabrics, and create a project that will draw many 'Wow - you made that!' comments. The process takes you on a journey from photo to work of art. This workshop is based around a computer program developed by Tammie Bowser.
Cost will be $50 for Guild members, $60 for non-members

Freedom with Nature-Scapes Workshop
2x2 Days with Caroline Sharkey
An Essential Product Kit consisting of stabilizers, adhesives, technique sample needs and stitching pattern sheet will be purchased in class $35each to the tutor at the beginning of class thank you.
Come and join me on this new amazing journey of Nature-Scapes.
My new found freedom of creating “glimpses” of nature amid an arrangement
of cloth & fibres, incorporating new textures and Art Quilting techniques. You will create little “windows” of joy with images of fabrics that can be found within your stash, master how to embellish them to make them pop!
Learn to make new fabrics with my technique of recreating fabric by chopping your fabrics, mixing and designing them into new surfaces.
Thread painting and embellish with 3D decorations as part of your theme and enhance the finish with stitched patterns across the surfaces.
Sometimes we find little fabric ‘gems’ we put away for another day…..just sometimes
we find the right project to take the scissors to them!
