  Spring into Watercolor!
            Saturday, March 10,  10:00-4:00pm
     ~ 'Handmade Paper' Quilts ~
          - Say a Final Goodbye to Winter -
                  Shout Hello to Spring! 
     Come inside and make a unique Paper Quilt!
Date is pending due to Easter.  Contact us if you are interested.                                                  
    Enjoy the last of this year's special art workshops as you  create your beautiful 'Handmade Paper Quilt'.  These a really lovely, decorative artworks that replicate fabric quilts.   They are textured, they are easy to make, and they come together in the fraction of the time it takes to make one of fabric.  Each quilt is as unique as you wish it to be..or use a traditional design that you choose from one of our quilting books. 
    The papers have been specially ordered from paper making artisans working all around the world.  We use only archival materials and glues to make these works of art.  This helps prolong their longevity.  They will last for many many years to come after matting and framing.
                                                                                                                          Vickie designed this unique workshop while taking a class in papermaking over 25 years ago.  the paper quilt that she made at that time is a colorful and as pretty as the day she created it.      
     Four of the quilts you see above are a variation on the 'Trip Around the World' traditional design.  As you are able to see, each artist chose colors that match the colors in a specific room in their own home.  If you want to create your own 'one of a kind' quilt pattern, Vickie will help you as she introduces you to the Elements of Art and the Principles of Design which will insure a great composition. 
             This will be one day workshop with all materials and                                   supplies, plus lunch included in the fee of $75
               You only need to bring a paint shirt or apron.
                             Max class size is 6 students.
