In the art world most assemblages are free standing or are mounted on a wood base. They often include bits and pieces of broken items or personal relics that are brought together to tell a new story.

In this class, art quilter, Heather Thomas will show you how to build a three dimensional art assemblage on a quilted base with a sturdy layer of the heavy stabilizer, Timtex.

Heather will show you how to use quick and easy machine quilting to build a fabric base to support your found objects with. Then she will help you explore lots of different ways to attach a myriad of fun and unusual objects to the surface as you bring your own story to life including:

  • Glues
  • stitching with floss
  • pin weaving
  • caging with fine wire
  • using brads
  • Grommets
  • and more

This is a wonderful technique that will allow you lots of creative freedom to create art quilts in a new way. In addition you will also receive a number of downloadable class resource documents to help with your next project.
