Inspiration Series with Hilary Rice
When Opposites Attract- Techniques for Art Quilters (Class Filled)
 For anyone with an adventurous spirit
Two of Hilary’s favourite materials to work with are connected in this workshop – silk and metal. Instruction will be given in making formed silk paper, together with the entire how-to’s involved when working with metal as an appliqué accent. Each student’s learning pieces will be assembled into a final art piece, applying already honed embellishing skills, coupled with a few new ones offered, for unification. This workshop will allow the artistically timid a chance to move from practiced techniques into using new ones.
NOTE: Each participant will create their own sampler using the introduced techniques. Finished works will reflect the individual’s experience.
