**CLASS** Colour Blending with Stranded Cotton - Sheena Norquay, Saturday 22nd June


Colour Blending with Stranded Cotton - with Sheena Norquay 
When: Saturday 22nd June 2019 10am - 5pm
Ability: All levels
Scottish Textile Artist Sheen Norquay is one of the most experienced quilting teachers in the UK and we are so pleased she has agreed to come to teach at our Studio in Yorkshire.  We have exhibited with Sheena at Festival of Quilts for the past few years and not only is her work incredible, she has a brilliant way of explaining her techniques and inspirations.
These workshops have been taught all around the World and we expect a high demand so book soon to avoid disappointment!  You could make a weekend of it and book onto the class on Sunday 23rd June as well.


This workshop was inspired by old embroideries from Sheena's collection and concentrates on using stranded cotton threads to create colour blending and shading. Stitches taught will include detached chain, French knots, seeding, crosses, couching, Turkey Track, running and laced running. 

Students can either use the design provided (Circle Flowers) which is about 8 inches square or their own design and a larger size.  The colour blending which is a 6 step graded blend of 2 colours can be completed in a day but the quilting which is graded from one to six strands has to be finished at home. The sample can be made into a picture, the centre of a small cushion, a pocket or the side of a bag.

Lots of samples will be shown, illustrating various ways of blending using different numbers of strands of threads and colours – colour blending is very addictive!
