Thread Painting Workshop with Cathy Jack Coupland

Hazelhurst Regional Gallery 782 Kingsway, Gymea
Saturday 29 August and Sunday 30 September 2015

This will be held in conjunction with the Quilters’ Guild of NSW Inc. exhibition Evolution, Change, Challenge – A Contemporary Quilt and the Hazelhurst Gallery exhibition of quilts from 1850 to the present day  Labours of Love.  This is an exciting opportunity to engage in a workshop at the Gallery and to also enjoy the exhibitions

Cathy Jack Coupland workshop photoCathy has created two designs for this workshop as an introduction to the technique of  thread painting.  It will appeal to those who have some confidence using their machine and working with their feed dogs down, but if you haven’t tried this technique – give it a go – Cathy will be there to help you.  The 2 day workshop will teach you how to transfer the designs, stitch the designs and finishing techniques.  This technique makes delightful and striking quilts and may also be used on clothing, furnishings and bags.  Other examples will be made available to show the diversity of this technique along with other resources, which may lead you to further investigation.

The cost of this workshop has been reduced. The workshop is for 2 days, however you will only pay for one day. Day one will be the main day for instruction. Day two is the festival day at the gallery, so many of the visitors will be interested in the workshop and will want to have a look at what is happening while you continue to practice your thread painting under Cathy’s guidance. There will be someone on site to answer the questions visitors may have, so Cathy will still be able to give her main attention to the participants.
