This two-day intensive block print and design workshop is an opportunity to work through the creative process with Valori Wells as your guide. Starting with a palette of fabric of your choice, Val will challenge and inspire you to expand creatively, sharing her sense of pattern and color. With your selected fabrics, you’ll design and create a table runner that will in turn provide the surface for your block prints. Drawing on ideas and designs that inspire you, you’ll follow Val’s lead through the process of cutting your own block. You’ll learn Val’s tips for cutting a block that will give you the result you want and how to avoid common pitfalls. Several of her blocks will also be available for your use. Through block printing and the addition of trims and stitching, you’ll create your own unique table runner. In addition to your project, you’ll leave with an understanding of block printing and another tool in your surface design and art quilting toolbox.
$10 lab fee included in the price of this class.
