Inktense Pencil Class at Honeybee Folk School

 

Class will be held Feb. 4 2023 at the NB College of Craft and Design. Sign up before Dec. 15 for a n early bird 30% reduction in the price of your class.  Put your adult colouring skills to work and play with inktense pencils on white cotton fabric to create flowers or leaves that you will use to create appliqu├ęs. This is a fun workshop where  you will learn some of the tricks for colouring realistic images and then adding liquid to turn them into beautifully shaded fabrics. You will cut them out and iron them to your chosen background. Choose between my patterns for clematis or maple leaves or bring your own inspirations for flowers and leaves. This can be used as a wall hanging, as a block in a bed quilt, to create a bag etc. Learning this technique opens many options for creating flowers and shaded fabrics. No stitching will be done during this class. Contact Honeybee Folk School for registration https://honeybeefolkschool.ca/courses-2/
