    Workshop – A Bed of Leaves with Beth & Trevor Reid

    Saturday, 13 & 20 April 2024, 10am-4pm.

    Mosaic Baptist Church Community Centre, 32 Dallachy Place (corner of Dallachy Place and Dallachy Street) Page (park in the carpark on the opposite corner)

    $205.00 non-members ($165.00 ACTTAA members)

    Workshop description
    Each leaf will be individually made and then applied to a base quilt. The workshop incorporates some drawing techniques and design ideas, effective use of colour, use of fabric paint and crayons, to some extent the use of a visual diary and free motion machine quilting. We will work through the development of a design, transferring that design onto fabric using different mediums such as fabric paints, pens and crayons and the use of free motion machine quilting. We will also look at how much quilting should be used and how much is enough. The leaves in this piece are attached to a base quilt. Other alternatives can be discussed and explored at the workshop.
