Mariya Waters “Cornucopia of Quilting Techniques”
In March 2015 Lisa Walton came down from Sydney to run her Permission to Play class. This surface design class focussed first on making patterns on fabric using a variety of techniques. Then the fabrics were assembled into a collage. Lisa encouraged everyone to play with colour and texture and to not worry too much about planning. While it was a lot to cover in two days, the participants had lots of fun and everyone was pleased with the results. You can see the results in this gallery.
