New two-day class. The first photo is before the use of inktense pencils and blocks and the second after. The difference is subtle but does achieve more realism which is what I aim to teach in this class. A pattern is supplied to participants via email attachment which they will be required to print off before class. Class has been kept it fairly simple so there are not too many supplies like pencils to buy, just enough for people to have a go at using this medium without the cost being prohibitive.

Melissa found that at her Quilting class at Symposium that most people were interested in learning how to use the rulers that are now available for quilting, so she has adapted this class to a 1-day class.
