Portraits in Appliqué

2 or 3 days


This workshop will teach you to turn one of your own photographs into a fabric portrait. While the result looks complex, the process is step-by step and you will be amazed at your results. We use only tools which are easily available, and no drawing skills are necessary. All drawing is simple tracing. 

We will have a meeting a couple of weeks before the class to discuss the type of image that you will work with – and I would prefer that you wait to take your photographs and choose your fabric after that meeting.

This image will be appliquéd using Vliesofix and soft edge appliqué because it is fast, but we will discuss different ways to appliqué during the workshop.

This is not a difficult class but it is a process that requires a lot of time and in a two day class you might get a quarter of the face down in fabric.
