Instructor: Sue Bleiweiss
Format: Two 5-hour sessions
Date: Saturday + Sunday, Dec 6 + 7
Join artist Sue Bleiweiss to learn her “coloring book fabric collage” technique—a fused style that includes black lines reminiscent of the coloring book pages we colored as children. Sue takes students through her process of creating an art quilt from start to finish,from hand dyeing the fabrics all the way through binding the quilt.
In this two day workshop, you’ll learn how to dye fabric the easy way. Even if you’ve never dyed fabric before you’ll finish with a pile of beautiful hand-dyed fabrics. You’ll spend the first day of the workshop dyeing your fabric using Procion dyes and learning how to create your own tone-on-tone fabrics using Jacquard Color Magnet. Color Magnet is a dye attractant that magically attracts more dye where it is applied,creating a unique,two-toned effect.
On the second day of the workshop,you’ll return with your pile of hand dyed fabrics and use them to create an art quilt. Students will have the option of creating a version of Sue’s Tutti Frutti Lane quilt or the smaller 3 Little Houses quilt. Both quilts are created using raw-edge,fusible appliqué combined with Sue’s easy quilt-as-you-go construction technique.
