Making Your Mark: The Hand Embellished Art Quilt

Apr 28 - May 4, 2019

5-Day Workshop

All Levels

Explore the broad, rich, amazing world of hand mark-making through stitching texture, pattern, and bring meaning into your art quilts and fiber art in this workshop. Bring a small art quilt, work of fiber art, or piece of art fabric to this workshop and spend five days learning techniques, exploring design, and then delving into embellishing it by hand. You'll work with beads of all sorts, beautiful threads of varying weights and materials, and other objects of special meaning or interest. Lisa will cover approaches to embellishment design, techniques for making your embellishments look terrific and stay securely in place, material selection, and a wide range of bead embroidery and contemporary hand stitching techniques.
