Laurie Swim's 2017 workshop schedule is out!

Two-day workshop: Picture it in Fabric

$230 + tax
Dates: July 15-16
This workshop is an introduction to creating a painterly representation in fabric. Participants will create a Cape-style house and a landscape to set it in, exploring a range of techniques and possibilities in fibre and thread. Demonstrations of techniques, discussions of approaches to solutions, and suggestions on how to finish and mount fabric art will also be covered.
Level: Intermediate to advanced

One-day workshop: Blossom Time

$125 + tax
Date: July 22

What better way to celebrate the seasons than with creating an apple tree or a maple tree in fabric in all their glory to enjoy year round? I have designed a pattern that will do just that and also includes learning a few innovative sewing techniques along the way. Spring or autumn scene? You choose. Level: Introductory to intermediate

One-day workshop: Tips and Tricks for Art Quilts   

$125 + tax
Date: August 20
This workshop explores techniques for achieving different effects for sewing creative landscapes. This includes free-motion machine embroidery and several methods of appliqué. Participants should complete a charming and attractive booklet of 7–8 sample pieces (7”x 7”) for future reference by the end of the day.
Level: All levels

Five-day workshop: From Start to Finish 

$575 + tax.
Dates: September 11-15
In this workshop, the participant will start by learning a number of techniques to design and create an original artwork referencing their own personal photos or drawings. Throughout the week, individual instruction and guidance in class will provide enough knowledge to finish the project on your own if need be. Finishing and mounting your fabric art will also be covered.
Level: Intermediate to advanced

All workshops will be held in Lunenburg, NS. Included in each workshop will be a talk in my gallery about the works on display.
Class size limited to 6–8 students.

Three sewing machines are available for rent if needed. If you would like one, please reserve at time of registration.
