Victoria Quilters' Guild Workshop - Sheer Collage

I will be teaching a workshop for my 'home' guild on September 9th.  Sheer Collage is a freeform, spontaneous way to make fibre art projects. Most quilters use only cotton fabrics. This workshop gives you the chance to play with lots of other fabrics, particularly sheer fabrics. 

These pictures are just a few examples of collage pieces using my techniques.

You will learn about basic design principles as you create a base collage design. Then you will embellish with stitchery, yarns and threads. We will sample both hand and machine embroidery techniques. At the end of class you'll have several small works of art.

I'm looking forward to seeing what students create in this workshop.
