 April 4, 2012 (online, 6 weeks) Freeform Screenprinting
Journey back to the playful freedom of childhood as you discover exciting ways to transform fabric.  This improvisational method is much easier than you might think!  You can turn your favorite doodle into yardage or your favorite picture into a quilt block.  Lyric will show you how to create screened images ranging from rough and improvisational screens using easily found materials such as newspaper and flour paste to finely detailed Thermofax images.  All skill levels welcome. Four Lessons. More info here.
