Chalk and Cheese Cloth


Instructor: Pam Holland

This is a fascinating class and unlike any you’ve done before.  I imagine, because we actually mold the cheesecloth to fit the image.  Unlike some other cheesecloth portraits you may have seen, you will form the outline of the portrait with thread. 

Whoops not I’m scaring you…but trust me it’s a technique and you will learn every detail and taken step by step you will achieve!

I’m so pleased you have chosen to join me in class.  Thank you!

Learn to mold your own fabric. 

I have several patterns for you to use in this class.  It’s easy when you know how!

You will begin by tracing the image onto fusible web.  You will have pigment ink pens in your kit, as well as 4 years of different grades of cheesecloth and black thread

Cost for kit $30.00

You will need a mechanical pencil to trace on the fusible web.  hopefully I will have some Steam a Seam 2 for sale in class for your convenience.  I am just visiting with the supplier right now. 

I wanted to talk to you all personally before you purchase it.  I’m asked constantly if you can use “Misty fuse…, you can, but it’s a little difficult because your can’t draw on it. 

Remember to bring the black fabric for the background and whatever you need on the back

Batting (thin cotton), Pins to baste the quilt.  Tape to tape it to the table.  I will also have a co-teach to help me give you the best experience in class.

Basic sewing kit.

A sandwich of backing, thin cotton batting and black cotton for the top.  30” square.
