The Painted Quilt: Creating Small Works
October 6-10, 2014 — During this workshop you will use textile paints and already painted or dyed fabric from home, combined with purchased fabric to create 2-3 small quilt tops, approximately 24" x 24" maximum. You will explore how to create small works with big vision! Elizabeth will share how she gets inspiration from within, getting quiet and centered before approaching her work. Because Elizabeth works with large scale pieces, she will show you how these small quilt studies have been a wonderful exercise for her in scale, time and impact. Half the time you will paint with textile paints, and half the time you will sew, though students are welcome to go at their own pace. Visit website

Learn a high degree of control of colour, design and form, without any supplementary cutting, sewing, or needle felting. The emphasis is on quality and control. This method and technique can be applied to many other ways of feltmaking. We ask all participants to have some kind of design idea prepared before the workshop begins.

Enriching a Surface Workshop
September 26-30, 2015 (9am-4pm) — The focus of this workshop will be using ProChem's Textile Paints and already painted or dyed fabric from home and combine these with purchased fabric to create 2-3 quilt tops, in the range of 24" x 24" maximum.

Because I usually work quite large, these small quilts have been a wonderful exercise for me in scale, time and impact. We will generally paint with Textile Paints half the time and sew half the time, though each participant will work at her/his own pace.
