  • $75.00

Join award-winning fibre artist, Valerie Wilson and learn to create a portrait art quilt based on the painting Girl with a Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer.


Portrait quilts are the perfect medium to capture the expression of not only a famous painting but also a friend or family member from a photograph. Portrait quilts can also create images of pets and other animals.


In this full-day class, Valerie will lead you through:

- How to choose a photo appropriate for a portrait quilt.

- How to use a pattern based on Girl with a Pearl Earring

- Selecting fabrics

- Using fabric to create depth and realism

- How to stitch and quilt your portrait


A kit of hand dyed fabrics will be available for this class at a small charge.


This class is designed for beginners and people with no experience in portrait quilts. The class will focus on replicating Girl with a Pearl Earring as a portrait quilt. A two day class that focuses on creating a portrait quilt from a photograph of your choosing will be on Saturday, October 20 and Sunday, October 21.
