Create a playful mixed media bird collage using a combination of vintage and contemporary design! With Judy and Liz as your guides, you will learn fabric collage, discover tons of hand and machine stitch ideas and have a play with screen printing and block printing. Using a vintage quilt block, you will choose your exotic bird fabric and create the first layer of your collage. It will then be enhanced using Thermofax screens and hand carved wooden printing blocks using Artistic Artifacts Textile Paints, while machine decorative stitches and hand stitches will add depth and interest. Your class kit — a $25 fee paid directly to the instructors the morning of class — includes a vintage quilt block base, vintage and contemporary fabrics, embellishments and trim, plus paint, Thermofax screens and wooden printing blocks for your use during class. Student Supply List: Rotary cutter, cutting mat and ruler, your own favorite hand-stitching needles and threads, small scissors. Birds Gone Wild encourages freedom of creativity and intuitive assemblage to create your unique vision. Dare to be free with our Wild Birds!
