Chris Eichner will conduct a workshop on how to create a mosaic art quilt using tiny pieces of shredded fabric cut with a rotary blade and placed according to a photo; the simpler the scene the better. Quilting (free motion) thru all 3 layers will be done to hold in place and then embellished with embroidery threads for added dimension and texture if time allows.
Chris Eichner has been teaching thread painting since 2008. Winning awards for her art quilts which are mainly landscapes and still life. She has also taught workshops at John C Campbell Folk School, North Carolina Quilt Symposiums, on cruise ship Royal Caribbean, quilt shops and quilt guilds. A day without thread painting is a like a day without sunshine, she loves teaching and has recently begun painting on fabric then teaching free motion embroidery techniques embellishing the subject.
She recently decided to create commissioned pieces and sell her art.
