Shredded Fabric Art Quilts Workshop

One-day/Six-hour Workshop
In this workshop students will learn to create their own shredded fabric impressionistic art quilt, using a technique originated by Noriko Endo. Fabrics are shredded in class and used to design a scene. Then the design is covered in tulle and top-stitched using free-motion sewing. Lenore will also cover finishing techniques, such as binding the piece and hanging methods.  Lenore will also show how she uses fabric paints to enhance these pieces even more where appropriate. No supplies fee required.
