Landscapes - Sunrises and Sunsets Instructor: Valarie Poitier
May 20-26, 2012
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.
