Colour Glitter and Glitz

You’ll learn how to make a small, individualized, textured wall hanging in bright colours with glitz and glitter. I’ve used bright colours, but a more traditional colour scheme would work equally as well.  After making a quick quilted background various decorative techniques will be taught, such as the use of paint, stencils, stamps, soldering irons, angelina fibres, hand and machine embroidery, plastics, appliqued shapes and flowers, braids, beads and sequins. This is a fun, creative and easy project for quilters of all skill levels, and students will learn many embellishing  techniques and tricks to ‘make’ fabrics, which could then be adapted to many other projects. The completed size can vary depending on individual choices, but in class we’ll make a wall hanging approximately 31”x15”.
