About this course


Do you love hand dyed fabric, but don't know how to use it?

Are you afraid to cut into it?

Do you like unusual fiber arts techniques?

Then you will love this class! Join me as I show you step by step how to create your own 3-D textile painting.

This is the same technique I demonstrated on Quilting Arts TV Series 1500.

Here's what you get:

  • A full list of materials and where to get them, most of them you already have.
  • Simple, step by step lessons with helpful tips to guide you.
  • Images of each step for visual learners.
  • Access to me to answer your questions and chat with other students.
  • Share your photos for critique and advice.
  • Get tips for other ways to use this technique.


How does this work?

The class is on a platform called Ruzuko.  Once you register and pay for your class (through Paypal), you get a welcome email with instructions.  You will be emailed when each new lesson is ready.  Once you start, each lesson will have activities that you check off when you're done.  You can download images, course materials, and videos, and when the class ends, it will remain online for you to refer to.  At the end of every lesson is a place to ask questions, make comments, and post images of your WIP's.  I will be asking for feedback at the end of the class, so I can continue to improve the class.

That's it!  I'm so excited to offer this class so you can make your own 3-D Textile Painting!  I hope you can join us!

Here's what some recent students had to say about this class:

I Loved your 3D quilt class! I plowed right thru it, went out and bought the supplies and am contemplating what to make! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! Thank you, thank you! ~Ellen Ann

I enjoyed the course and would recommend it to anyone interested in art quilting... I dyed my fabric (for the first time) and that was a good learning  experience. In the end, I felt my piece needed something else  so I added some different  fabric that had some of the same and some different colors to help the original piece. All in all, I am please with the process and the finished piece. I love "out of the box" projects. Thanks for all of your suggestions and help...

I would recommend the course to friends because I did enjoy the lessons and the fact that they were done at my pace. Sometimes courses on a deadline are hard to get to if you have other responsibilities to tend to at home.

This was a good experience and lots of fun! Thank you. ~Jody

I was intrigued by the 3-D fabric sculpture. The class was fun. Lessons clear with a lot of room for interpretation. Some concrete thinkers would want more specifics like What size canvas do you recommend. How much fabric for the cut pieces compared to the canvas. 
I think the watered down Elmers glue made a softer canvas than the  gel medium watered down I had used in the past.
I loved learning the layering of the fabric, wonder-under and fusible made a product that kept its shape after heating--WOW
Great tips on the machine settings. I have a Bernina 1630 and it was perfect!

Loved the class, wish there was more interaction with other students, but I myself was pretty busy too-so I get it.~ Barbara
