About the event

Description

In this class we create beautiful landscape fibre art pieces to give you the confidence to continue onto your own designs.   Trees, mountains, rocks, fields, lakes, walls, gardens and so much more - the skies are endless.  You will learn about perspective, color, and new techniques to create your own reference book of samples and your own landscape design with the goal for art work to be framed and cherished for years to come.

Susan Jensen is an accomplished quilter, pattern designer and fibre artist. She takes inspiration from the beauty in nature, and loves to photograph the waters, woodlands, and gardens in her home province of British Columbia.
