Quilt Artists Guide to Color Session 4: Texture, Print and Raising Surface

This session is all about visual and tactile texture and learning how to use them to create movement, rhythm, surface tension, dominance and so much more. Heather will help you understand how what is printed on the surface of a fabric or its visual texture, can affect the piece and in turn the viewer. She will guide you through a couple of exercises that will help you understand how the role of motif scale effects how a fabric occupies space and therefore influences design. She will then lead you into the exciting world of using fabrics and embellishments that have tactile texture so you can create a surface that begs to be touched.
