"Nick" - Collage the Laura Heine Way

  • Wooden Gate Quilts 125 Railroad Avenue Danville, CA, 94526 United States (map)

Let’s get some Christmas cheer flowing as we create “Nick” by Laura Heine. Debi is a certified Instructor for Laura Heine collage technique and is enthusiastic to share the fun of collage with you. Gather up all of YOUR favorite and not so favorite Christmas fabrics (any size scraps will work) so you can build “Nick” and embellish the background to suit your holiday fancy!

TIME: 10am - 3pm each day

FEE: $75 + pattern and background fabric kit

LEVEL: Beginner

The class will be conducted over two days; Sunday September 22 & Sunday, September 29

September 22 - we will learn the difference of fusible products and their specific usage, trace our pattern, begin the fusible process of our fabrics and the underlay of backgrounds.

Homework - cut out all your motifs!

September 29 - You will have the entire class to create/design the collage your way.Most can complete the collage and be ready for quilting! (No pressure…we have drop-ins for those “more creative folks!)
