Landscapes, Sunrises, & Sunsets at John C Cambpell Folk School

Here's an opportunity to spend a week painting on fabric, we will paint skys the main focus when we start will be landscapes, sunrises, and sunsets, then as we all relax into the week we will begin to paint different times of day, weather, seasons, you get the idea!  If there are not slots you could get on the wait listing!  For those who are local and would be more comfortable toting their machines there will be time on the last day or so to put in a few machine stitches, I personally would rather paint as much as possible but we all have our comfort zones so feel free to bring that machine.  Sewing will be encouraged before or after class sessions...except the last day or sew.

In a relaxed setting, learn how to use non-toxic, permanent textile paints on cotton fabric suitable for quilts. Spend the first few days painting in colors evoking earth and sky, and then incorporate your fabric into a wall quilt of your own pieced, appliqued, or fused design. Discover how fabric and design choices convey "mood" and "sense of place." Painting will be outdoors with moderate activity; no prior skills needed. However, students should have experience in piecing and applique.
