About the Event
IN PERSON: Class, Sunday, April 7th, 10AM - 3PM PST
Learn to create and incorporate your own imagery into your fiber arts projects. In this workshop you will learn how to create you own stencils and print on fabric. We will print on 6-inch squares, play around with their juxtaposition, and then piece them together. The finished product can be a nine square piece, or you can keep each square individual and make them into coasters or table-top squares.
The techniques and skills learned can be applied to quilt making, garment making, and other fiber arts pieces and are a wonderful way to personalize your
work. You can add stitching on top of your printing if time allows. The project will be hand stitched, and will only be pieced together - not backed and bound - although different finishing techniques will be discussed.
Skill level: ✂️
This class is for all creatives! You don't need sewing skills.
Supplies: You will receive the fabric and equipment requirements once you sign up. Bay Quilts is glad to help you select fabrics.

Her work appears in a number of publications including Masters: Book Arts: Major Works by Leading Artists, 500 Handmade Books (Vol. I & II), and 1000 Artists’ Books: Exploring the Book as Art.

This class is being held at the Bay Quilts located at 5327 Jacuzzi St. 3-C, Richmond, CA 94804. Bay Quilts is run by Sally Davey and her daughter, Abbey-Shane a team of lifelong artists and crafters who have been in the quilting industry for over 30 years. They opened Bay Quilts to share their passion and knowledge with the vision of creating a community where artists, crafters, quilters, and makers of all ability can learn, grow, and create together. This unique fabric shop is so much more than a store - from consignment quilts and gifts, and cloth figures to monthly gallery exhibitions and artist receptions to workshops. Bay Quilts is a sanctuary for creatives of all skill level. Bay Quilts is generously offering a 10% discount to students on the day of the class.
The classroom space is on the 2nd level so you will need to be able to climb a flight of stairs. There is a convenient caddy so you don't have to carry your equipment up the stairs.
Class fees are non-refundable. However you may transfer the class to a friend if you let us know in advance.
