All events can be booked online (details available Jan 1 2018.) Check out her gallery of work on her website. We expect classes to fill quickly, so book early to avoid disappointment.
PHOTO TO FABRIC, WORKING INTUITIVELY Wednesday July 25th 9:30 am to 4:30 pm $125-
This is a one day introduction workshop designed for students to learn the technique and finish a simple piece in a single day workshop. Using a photo as a guide, this workshop will instruct students to work intuitively, without following a pattern precisely. Instruction covers discussion of color/value/print scale and using unexpected fabric; using an art quilters value scale value card to choose fabric; organizing and working in a controlled random method, the step by step process and finishing techniques. Students will work solely on the tree from the Explorer’s pattern.
YOUR OWN PHOTO, GUIDED TOUR Thursday & Friday July 26 &27 2018 $250-
For this workshop, students are encouraged to work on a photo of their own, (this must be emailed one month prior to the workshop for a pattern). Instruction covers color/value/print scale; using the art quilters value scale card, the technique step by step, thread painting the details and finishing options.
A $20 kit fee from each participating student (included in your registration fee) will cover the cost of creating a pattern from your photo and a laminated value card. If you do not wish to use your own photograph, students may choose a pattern from a variety of options. These will be emailed to you after you have registered for the class.
Leni will be presenting a trunk show of her work in the Town Hall on Saturday July 28th 2018 noon – 1:30 pm. Admission fee $15-. We recommend booking online for the trunk show; payment will be accepted at the door only if there are any remaining spaces.
