Let me tell you about my workshops! Digital Fiber Mini Quilt

Digital Fiber Mini Quilt- a great choice!  Basically, the workshop is a smaller version of my Segmented Fiber Quilts workshop. The workshop explores an innovative quilt presentation that folds! WS is based on Wen’s book, Digital Fiber, creating a segmented mini-fabric quilt with a photograph on inkjet ready fiber and inkjet printed!

            This is a 2 day workshop where participants can choose to make one or two 12x12 or less mini quilts. Student's personal photographs are printed on a collage of digitally prepared fabric or plain fabrics they bring from home. The fabrics should be thin but can be pretty much any natural fiber- not syntheic. InkAid will be introduced and used on that collage. 
Printers are required and most folks have one anyway. Use of my printer, if available, for extra materials fee. There are also small portable printers available. Sometime you can find them used on Ebay. Printer suggestions 8/25/2017 (subject to change) - here

            The digital quilt will feature a new edge treatment that uses paint! 
Because the quilt is in segments, using the old-fashioned binding method just won’t work. It’s much too bulky. The unique segmented quilt lends itself to various configurations and presentations. Too much creative fun!!
The painted edges yield a wonderful new textural accent to the finished segmented piece. 
             We will discuss how Wen prints on fabric, photographic enhancements and dividing a photo to create larger work. Seeing your photograph printed on the collage you created is So cool!
     Wen will show you her innovative batting technique- fusing felt to the back which serves as both backing and batting! 
Besides learning about Wen’s protective coating and finishing techniques, the students will have the opportunity to try specialty medium enhancements for a unique mixed media mini quilt!
Hope you’ll join us!
