International quilting star Helen Godden is coming to teach at Central! Considered an extreme free motion quilter, Helen is a lifelong artist and recognized internationally for her skills of blending art with fabric in her innovative quilts. This award-winning Handi Quilter ambassador loves to travel the world teaching workshops and sharing her love of quilting by educating and inspiring students as they launch into the world of possibilities that is “art quilting!”
In this workshop, select from one of Helen’s Feathered Friend designs and trace a 14” design on to 20” black homespun. With demonstration and no previous painting skills required, we then paint and combine colours to blend and create our birdie block! Once they are dry and sandwiched, Helen will demonstrate a wide variety of fresh and fun free motion quilting styles that will complement your work and add so much life and energy into it! You will take your skills to the next level by pairing a unique medium (paint) with free motion quilting to create something truly stunning and one of a kind.
