Garden Patch ~ mixed media art quilt WORKSHOP with Jane LaFazio
At Bishop’s Ranch, Healdsburg, California
in beautiful Sonoma County (75 miles north of San Francisco)
June 12-15, 2016
Create your own unique small quilt while learning new techniques for art quilting and sketchbook. First, we’ll look for inspiration in the forests, fields and gardens of The Bishop’s Ranch. Based on your quick sketches, youʼll design and carve your own unique stamp to create original surface design on fabric and paper to assemble into a small, hand stitched quilt for a wall hanging or pillow top. Jane will guide you in design and technique, but the quilt will be all your own.
