Tuesday 11th June
Learn how to achieve painterly effects with Lutradur (a spun bound textile) in easy achievable stages. These painted organic shapes can then be incorporated into your quilt making. Once learnt these techniques can then be transferred and applied to figures and other complex shapes. A partial kit will be supplied for this workshop to complete an Autumnal piece.
Pat will bring the essential added extras (Lutradur) for you at a cost of £5 plus paints if necessary - see below. She would need to know 4 weeks in advance if you would like the paints that she uses.
