Betsy Habich

Thread Painting workshop

Two-Day Workshop: Saturday April 21 & Sunday April 22, 2018
Thread-painting gives you the freedom to make a very realistic image entirely with thread, and the only skill you need is confident free-motion quilting! We’ll start with warm-up exercises to learn how to use basic straight-stitch and zig-zag free-motion thread-painting, mix and shade colors, work with line, and create the illusion of volume, while discussing how to make an image realistic. With these skills in hand, we’ll start thread-painting a photograph printed on fabric, either one provided by the instructor or your own (send ahead of time to the instructor for approval, who can also print it on fabric for $5 per 8 ½ x 11 sheet). You’ll be amazed by what you can do!
