Raintree Woods Workshop–Intro to Art Quilts

Intro to Art Quilts

If you are intrigued by art quilts but feel intimidated, then this class is for you!  This workshop will bring you insight, fun & success.  The goal is to design a small (12” to 18”) art quilt using the collage approach and fusing.  Design and compositional elements will be the starting point for the project.  Some supplies are included with the fee–please note the student supply list below.
