Make It University

This year, I will be doing two MIU workshops during International Quilt Festival called Metal Magic, the first workshop will be Saturday at 4pm, right before Project Runway at 5:30 and the second one will be Sunday at 12:00.

This project will give participants the opportunity to try out Lesley Riley's transfer paper TAP (I have pre-printed some with images from my paintings since we won't have a printer available at the show), aluminum metal that can be cut with decorative scissors, embossed and even hand stitched and also work with grungeboard, a very cool hybrid of chipboard and some polymer type material. This is a fun little project to try out several different products and techniques.

I am scheduled for Open Studios thursday evening from 6:00-8:00 pm, that's where I will be embossing copper for the small mixed media canvas books.


I just found out today that both my classes at Festival, Tsukineko Inks (thursday) and Painting Fabric for Whole Cloth Quilts (friday), are completely filled, wow! I am looking forward to meeting all of you who signed up. I can't believe it is only a week away, hopefully I won't be coughing anymore and will have my energy back, because I am really going to need it.
