Class Description / Part One:  Surface Design Class #5   

Using your personal artwork, you will be able to make a thermofax silkscreen and be printing with it in less than a half hour. Teacher will also share studio screens and supply paint, and instruction on various printing techniques.

Class Description / Part Two:  Surface Design Class #5A

Using the fabrics you made the day before, you will make something wonderful! Try to plan ahead what your project will be, whether its a skinny quilt or wall hanging, a table runner, table topper, pillow, or even a totebag, whatever you like.

BUT PLEASE Keep It Simple!  Let your fabric be the most complicated and interesting part of the project, so it takes the stage. Don’t worry if you don‘t finish the sewing on the day of class--I’ll make sure you have it under control before you leave the studio!

Cost per person: $220 for the weekend
