Instructor: Martha Kotter, 2019 Friends of the Porkies Artist in Residence. Use your silk painting from the previous class “Silk Painting from Nature” to make a quilted hanging .  They will learn about hand quilting and making embellishments.  Although you will will not finish during class, you will leave knowing needed finishing techniques.
