From Simple Stencils to Complex Art Quilts


  • Snow Farm - The New England Craft Program 5 Clary Road Williamsburg, MA, 01096 United States

Do you love stencils? Do you have a favorite image or a doodle you've been making for years? Do you find that you love leaf shapes or architectural elements like squares and block shapes but can't figure out how to use them in new ways?

In this workshop you'll lean how to convert those simple shapes and ideas into fun, alluring and very personal stencil designs and masks. Once created you'll learn how to use them in new and unconventional ways such as screen-printing and spray painting with textile paints on fabric. Then together we'll turn those images into complex art quilts that are filled with layers of transparent imagery and stitch.

Students will leave class with one finished (or almost finished!) art quilt that measures approximately 18" x 30".
