Chalk and Cheese Cloth

 

Chalk and Cheesecloth

Instructor: Pam Holland - Two Day Class -  $175.00

Thursday and Friday, June 20 & 21 - 9:00 am - 4:00 pm  Intermediate/Advanced

Create portraits using plain white cheesecloth and thread.

It looks difficult but its a method I have designed and you will follow one of my patterns and work step by step to achieve the finished product.

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 now 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.

Salama Mumma and Pam’s Siddi Quilt (First Edition)

Instructor: Pam Holland - One Day Class.  $80.00

Saturday, June 22, 2019 - 9:00 am - 4:00 pm • All levels

Traditionally, Siddi quilts are created for family members and used as sleeping mattresses in warm weather or as covers during the cool, damp monsoon season. Large quilts come in sizes based on one, two or more family members. A quilt for three or more persons is regarded as auspicious, as it implies a growing family with children. In addition there are small, baby-sized quilts that are often decorated with brightly coloured patches (tikeli). Kawandi are normally made of pieces of cloth from old, worn-out clothing gathered together by the quilters from family, friends or from items purchased at the local used-clothing markets.
