Creative Quilt Designing with Wendy Nutt

When: 9.30 am-4pm Sunday 30 April 2017
Where: Epping Creative Centre, 26 Stanley Road, Epping
Cost: $65 for members $100 non-members BOOK ONLINE

Come and join this workshop  with Wendy Nutt for a liberating quilt making experience.

You will design and construct a small quilt top – the size is flexible. On this journey we’ll examine shapes familiar to you and use these to inspire a design process. The exercise presents a number of ways to interpret the shapes and achieve very different designs resulting in your own unique quilt. 

You’ll be encouraged to ‘step outside the square’ with colour choices that will lead to extraordinary and surprising results. As Wendy explains “I’m armed with colour and not afraid to use it”. Bring a plentiful supply of varied fabrics to the workshop.

Some cutting and assembly techniques will also be covered – improvised cutting, tips and tricks for smooth piecing and space filling ideas that may assist you in completing your design.
