Quilting is the term given to the process of joining a minimum of three layers of fabric together. Mixed Media Quilting joins together layers of clay as well as pieces of metal, wire, beads, and other found objects as the artist desires. In this class we will explore “alternative” veneers which use liquid clay and colorants and your own hand-designed molds. We will also explore an alternative Mokume Gane veneer that works well as sky or water. We will then create beautiful “crazy quilt” sheets with these veneers to be used for art pieces, functional items such as bowls and boxes, or jewelry items. Finally, we will create fabulous mixed media items using the veneers as well as metal, wire, beads, and other found objects.

Materials lists will be provided for attendees who wish to participate during class. PDF tutorials will be provided after class. This class is intended for artists with some experience using clay.
