This year I was honored to be asked to join the ladies of Artistic Alchemy. It is a group of four women who hold an annual retreat at the beginning of September, at Zephyr Point Lake Tahoe. Christine Barnes retired from the group and I was lucky enough to get her spot. The classes are for creatives and sewists looking for a 4 day class with evening activities.
The group consists of Sandra Bruce, Mary Boalt, me Jane Haworth and Heidi Emmett. Sandra's class is Material Matrix, Mary's Printing on canvas, Mine Fabric Collage Addiction and Heidi's is making art wearables and upcycled clothing. Sign up for our blog here and see more details of the classes, the registration form. Registration is open till June 30 2018.
My class is Pet Portrait Fabric Collage and click here to read more details about it. I am encouraging students to work from their own enlarged photo and make a quilt maybe of their pet or other image they love. I will also have my own patterns that can be used for creating collage. It will be great to look at photos, fabric and design in a whole new way.
'Pet Portraits Fabric Collage is a fun, few-rules-apply class where a photo of your choice is made using my raw-edge collage technique in fabric. I love to see students working uniquely on something that appeals or speaks to them. I am encouraging students to use a pet or similar from a photo.
