Creating your own landscape or abstract art quilt seems intimidating to most. Lola has taken the fear out of landscape quilting with this class called Fantasy Collage. You do not have to go through the traditional method of choosing a picture and making a pattern, instead Lola will teach you how to tap into your childhood imagination using the spontaneous side of your brain to make spectacular fantasy landscape collages. Most students believe that they do not have any creativeness in them. This class will teach you how to tap into that resource that is lying dormant. Starting out with a printed fabric panel or novelty prints for inspiration Lola will guide you through her step by step approach to making a beautiful collage. Students will learn: how to divide their canvas into thirds, how to consider size of elements, how to choose elements of nature to include in the project, and how to capture the essence of their idea in an imaginative and spontaneous fashion. Using Lola’s method students will be able to unlock the secrets of making complicated collages in no time flat. The inner child will be awakened. In addition students will learn how to use a variety of different products to enhance their work. Students will leave with completed fantasy collage top appx. 11 x 17. No sewing machine required in the one day class. In two day class students will also learn how use a variety of threads to quilt the project and some thread painting. Optional Kit is available.
