Faces in FabricThis workshop is for those who are interested in a more specific look at rendering the human face convincingly in fabric, no matter what your drawing skills may be. Not an art student? Not to worry…with a few fun drawing exercises, some basic techniques and the use of lightboxes, we can all make a "master pattern" with people that look like real people. Some drawing on paper, and some work on fabric. In class time experiment with fabric pastels, inks and markers and produce simple, effective faces on fabric. This workshop provides the tools you need to later customize and use your own photos or drawings of people in your quilts. All skill levels welcome - this is an "I can do it!" experience for anyone willing to try.
