Portrait Fibre Art - Designing Art Quilts Using Your Own Photographs with Valerie Wilson - Saturday, October 20 and Sunday, October 21
Join award-winning fibre artist, Valerie Wilson and learn to create a portrait art quilt based on a photograph of your choosing.
Portrait quilts are the perfect medium to create an original piece of art while capturing the expression of a friend or family member from a photograph. Portrait quilts can also create images of pets and other animals.
In this two-day class, Valerie will lead you through:
- How to choose a photo appropriate for a portrait quilt.
- Creating a pattern based on your photograph
- Selecting fabrics
- Using fabric to create depth and realism
- How to stitch and quilt your portrait
This class is designed for people with some knowledge of portrait quilts. However, the class will be suitable for those with no experience in portraiture as well. The class will focus on designing an original quilt based on the photograph of your choice.
We have negotiated a special rate at Canad Inns for students who are travelling from outside of Winnipeg for this class. Information available upon registration.
