I am very happy to be included in the 2017 Waterloo Region and Beyond's Quilt and Fibre Art Festival taking place May 23rd to 27th this year.

Last year's workshop was a lot of fun and I'm offering a new, expanded version this year with more advanced techniques in the morning for those of you who want an in-depth understanding of my process.

Here's the info below. Feel free to contact me if you have questions.

See you soon and Happy Spring!

Kathy White’s passion for both fine art and natural fibre yarns has led to the creation of her unique method of applying yarns to canvas using beeswax to create ‘yarn paintings.’ In this new expanded version of her popular workshop, she will teach in depth history and techniques and guide participants through the application of skills to create their own work of art.

Come for the full day for a comprehensive understanding of yarn painting with beeswax or choose to attend just the morning or afternoon sessions.

In the morning, Kathy will cover the new, advanced portion of the workshop, discussing artists already exploring versions of yarn painting and teaching the application of the beeswax to painting boards, advanced selection of yarns to consider, and methods of applying the image to the board.

The afternoon session is suitable for those who just want to try out the technique and for those from the morning session who want to put their new advanced knowledge to work. Participants receive everything they need to create their own yarn painting.

All materials are provided. Participants are encouraged to bring embroidery scissors and an image for painting inspiration.
