April 19 - Gail Crotty - Coloring with Crayons.
This method comes from "Creative Quilts From Your Crayon Box: Melt-N-Blend Meets Fusible Applique by Terri Linn Kygar." This workshop will focus on a different way to create "art" on your quilt or on any fabric by using melted crayons to paint on fabric. Gail uses the method to create "appliques" for placement on quilts, but the finished project could be easily used to adorn a card, book cover, etc. The colors and shading with the Crayola crayons will surprise you as you can create anything you can draw or copy. You will also be surprised by what you use for your "paintbrush" as well as other ways (Pigma Pens, Prismacolor pencils and Faber-Castell Gelatos) to add color and texture to the drawings. Workshop fee will be $15, $10 for the use of facility and a $5 supply fee. A supply list will be available at the March business meeting. The time is 1-4pm.
