Red Bloom is a two day workshop that includes techniques for making multi-fabric backgrounds, machine applique and thread painting. This class uses gradations of hand dyed fabrics to create a random fractured background with a large graphic flower. The flower is also constructed from various values of hand dyed fabrics or can be made from commercial fabrics. Techniques for creating highlights and shadows will be covered. The finished piece is 34" square. You will have the option of purchasing Juanita's hand dyed fabrics for the background and flowers or you may obtain a detailed list of fabric requirements if you want to hand dye your own fabrics or use the hand dyes that you may have in your stash.
