Father Christmas - Personalized

Father Christmas Description    1 day class   with Patt Blair     

Using Patt’s contour drawing of Father Christmas you will paint a pictorial Father Christmas Story that is uniquely you or perhaps a person for which you may be creating this piece as a gift.  You will use Tsukineko pigment inks to create your “Father Christmas ‘  The class is open to all skill levels as Patt will present you with his happy face already on fabric so you can spend your class time playing/adding to his hat and coat and background/foreground.  click here to see the face painting I deliver to students for this class( Note: The example quilted coat includes scenes from England, tea service, and sewing memorabilia which uniquely represented the quilt recipient.)
