Andrea Brokenshire class at ProChem
“Painted Silk Appliqué on a Confetti Background"
July 10-14, 2017

If you noticed Andrea Brokenshire’s Rhodedendron quilt at the MQX show this year or her passion flower last year you might be interested in taking a workshop with her.  

Award winning artist Andrea Brokenshire will guide you through the process of painting your personal floral image on silk.  You will learn how to prepare the silk for painting and then transfer your design. The majority of the week will be spent painting your floral image, after a discussion on the basics of color theory and how to mix colors using a CMY color wheel. Andrea will do a demonstration on making the confetti background, in addition to finishing the edges of the appliqué to prepare it for the confetti background. There will also be a group discussion on how to machine quilt your flowers.
