Program is pleased to announce the February 2015 speaker and workshop facilitator,
Valerie Wilson of Winnipeg.
Her presentation ‘Not one of your Grandmother’s Quilts’ will be followed with a three-day workshop: Portraits in Fabric. Her piece ‘Rupert and his Brother Waiting for Gladys’ featured on the 2014 Quilt Canada’s NJS catalogue won Judge's Choice - Karen Menzies.
Have you ever wanted to create a portrait of a friend, or family member, in fabric, but you don’t know where to start? Or have a fear of not being able to do it? This is the class for you!
You will learn how to create a portrait based on a photo that you provide. You will learn how to develop a pattern from your photo, choose appropriate fabrics and the steps needed to build the quilted portrait. This class focuses on a head and shoulders picture done in raw edge appliqué.
Workshop Friday to Sunday February 20, 21 & 22, 2015 at the UofA HE Apparel Design Lab.
Hours 9:30am to 4:00pm; lunch provided by Rockin’ Robyn’s Diner.
