MB Fabric Painting w/Melanie Hummingbird & Fuschias



Painting on fabric is a fun, unique skill anyone can learn. You’ll love your finished panel that can be turned into anything from a wall hanging to a bag. Add applique to create a border, or add embroidery to give it a completely different look.

You will learn “dry brush painting” techniques in this class.  Paints are permanent so they withstand washing, so dress for the mess.
