Fabric Art with Martha Beauchamp

In this 3-hour class, learn how to create flowers without using a pattern.  Discover how to look at fabric a tad differently when creating art.  While this may sound impossible (“But I’m not an artist”), it is as easy as doing kindergarten cutting.  We’ll be using raw edge applique, tulle, and/or free motion quilting to “keep our bouquets from walking away”. 

The focus of this class is on PROCESS, helping with the skill set and confidence necessary to create art pieces on your own.   

Materials for mounting on canvas or matting the artwork will be available for purchase from instructor.
