One-Day Workshop: Watercolour With Fabric!
Join us on Saturday 04 May 2024 in London for a truly fabulous One-Day, live, In-Person workshop with Carolina Oneto and her wonderful 'Watercolour With Fabric' class!
Introduction by Carolina:-
Hello, I am Carolina. I’m the mother of three wonderful children; two girls and one boy, and wife of a wonderful husband. I was born in Chile in the picturesque village of Valparaíso and I've travelled and lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina (where I had the incredible opportunity of learning patchwork with Teresita Leal and Cecilia Koppman, known Argentinian quilters) and I currently live in São Paulo, Brazil, where I have my own studio, from where I am continuously creating and developing my art and teaching that WE ARE ALL CREATIVE!!! I have always liked constantly learning and perfecting myself, every February I travel to the Quiltcon where I go to different classes, workshops and talks with known international quilters. I also studied Color Interaction with Professor and artist Eduardo Vilches in the Universidad Católica in Santiago, Chile. My quilts have been exhibited in many Quilt Festivals around the world, such as Quilt Week (Paducah, Lancaster, Des Moines, Daytona Beach, Grand Rapids, Virginia Beach), Quiltcon, Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, European Carrefour do Patchwork, Fiberart International, Festival do Patchwork Gramado and Floripa Quilt Festival (both in Brazil) and my work has been featured at art centers and galleries in Europe, USA and Chile. I love to teach online quilting and design classes and I can't wait to meet you!
What You Will Learn in this Online Interactive Workshop:-
Join Carolina as she teaches you her very clever process of how to create a “Watercolor Quilt”. What is the one thing many people struggle with? Colour! So let's begin there. First you will start learning about Colour Theory, the chromatic circle and the 3 variables of colour. This could be a whole workshop in itself! Carolina will then guide you throughout the process of choosing fabrics to create a beautiful transition with colours (like when we paint with watercolors!) How o we translate this to a quilt? How do we create a watercolour effect? Carolina will teach you the process, step by step. You can be sure that this complete one-day course will provide you with many new techniques and colour theory knowledge that will allow you to feel confident designing, cutting and sewing in an improvisational way, but with some rules to create beautiful movement in your quilts. A truly unique and wonderful opportunity.
Skill Level for this Online Interactive Workshop:-
This One-Day Workshop is suitable for all; if you are a beginner this is a great way to start and for those with some confidence and experience you could add further to your knowledge and skills within this professionally pitched lesson.
Fabric Material requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop:-
All the materials are easily accessible and we will give you a list of what to bring nearer the time.
For the sewing:-
- Pins, Fabric Scissors and Snips
- Optional - Small Travel Iron and Pressing Mat could be useful
Tickets for this Live, In-Person, Watercolour Painting with Fabric Workshop will be limited and allocated on a first-come/first-served basis, so please be sure to book quickly!
The ticket price of £145.00 is based on ONE person attending this live, in-person crafting class. The price includes a lovely Lunch, Tea & Coffee and Light Refreshments on the day, as well as the class Tuition which runs from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
Why Not Make A Full Weekend Of It?!
If you would like to make a Quilting Bonanza Weekend of it and embrace the One-Day Live In-Person 'Watercolour With Fabric' Workshop AND attend our other One-Day in-person classes (Sarah Hibbert is teaching on Sunday 5th May and Nicholas Ball is teaching on Monday 6th May), why not treat yourself to more classes (all the same price at £145.00 per head per day) and take full advantage of the Premier Inn Hotel just minutes away (you will need to book and pay for that yourself). There is also an NCP Car Park behind the building so you need not worry about finding on street parking. You could use public transport as the tube/train is very close by or even arrive by boat as the location has its own landing strip! Greenwich is only about 15 minutes away too with plenty of beautiful hotels. The choice is yours!
Phew! That's a lot of information to take in! If you are at all confused by any of the above and need any help whatsoever by way of explanation, please just email us via email@example.com.
