Classes at Debbie's house in Albuquerque's NE Heights (off Spain, just west of Tramway) 
Small classes, 4 to 6 students maximum, in a relaxed setting with very personalized instruction. (Registration info is below.)
Please note that Debbie has cats, in case you're allergic; they stay in the guest room during class.

                                Saturday, May 26, 10am-2:30pm  (offered again on Saturday, July 14, same hours)
                  Silk Fusion Vessels  

                                Learn to make these exquisite vessels by choosing a vase then bonding silk and other fibers to it using a special 
                                varnish. Once dry, remove it from the vase and you have a beautiful Silk Fusion Vessel. Insert an electronic candle or 
                                fairy lights for a soft glow that really highlights the silk fibers. You'll have fun playing with dozens of fibers and
                                choosing your favorites to make a one-of-a-kind vessel! These fibers are incredibly soft yet so strong when bonded 
                                together. Add Angelina fiber, Firestar, yarns, threads or other embellishments for sparkle if you like (included in the 
                                kit fee). The varnish does not make the vessel shiny or overly stiff, just sturdy enough to hold its shape. It will still be 
                                soft and textured and oh, so touchable. There's nothing else quite like it! Debbie will also demonstrate how to bond
                                silk fibers to a glass vase permanently, as pictured on the bottom of the first Silk Fusion Vessels page - super easy! A 
                                detailed handout is included, so you can make more vessels at home. They make great gifts! See more examples of this 
                                class on the Silk Fusion Vessels pages. 

                                $55 + tax includes all materials and supplies with your choice of electronic candle or fairy lights, plus a color handout.
                                You're welcome to borrow one of Debbie's vases or bowls and then pick up your vessel a few days later when it's dry,
                                -or- you can bring your own vase up to 9" tall (used to shape the vessel on), a wine bottle or olive oil bottle (used as a
                                stand to hold the vase upside down), a box to take it home in and a few old towels to prop it up. Bring a lunch. More 
                                details are in the Welcome Letter that is sent when you register. Contact Debbie if you have questions.

                                Friday, June 15, 9:30am-2:30pm
                            Fabric Seascape Decollage (with a Fantasy Fish Twist)
                                This is a combination of two classes: it's Seascapes but with a Fantasy Fish twist. You'll make a breathtaking 11"x14" 
                                underwater scene with fabric and fusible web that can be framed as is, or stitched/quilted at home if you prefer. 
                                No experience is necessary. Learn to use your rotary cutter to cut kelp in a free-form style - it's easy! With their
                                vibrant colors, the fish are "woven" through the kelp to give your seascape a 3-D look. Choose from printed fish 
                                fabrics, or make your own fish using Debbie's Fantasy Fish patterns. These seascape techniques are fun to share 
                                with kids and grandkids - they love making "fishy" scenes! A detailed handout is included. See more examples of this
                                class on the Seascapes pages and Student Gallery pages, and here is a link to see Fantasy Fish.

                                $49 + tax includes all materials and supplies plus a handout. Just bring sharp scissors (or borrow Debbie's) and a

                               Saturday, June 16, 9:30am-4pm
                                Fabric Landscape Decollage

                                Create a unique 11"x14" fabric landscape, in any style or color scheme, finished in one day and ready for a frame! It  
                                will look like a painting - a "fabric painting"! No stitching needed, and no experience is necessary. With many chances  
                                to change your mind as your work evolves throughout the day, it’s easy and fun. Bring a landscape photo for 
                                inspiration, or choose from hundreds of Debbie's pictures in class. Then choose from thousands of Debbie's 
                                landscape fabrics to make your special scene. No templates or patterns are needed.  Instead, you'll learn free-form
                                cutting techniques to create a fabric landscape all your own. She will also show you how to alter this technique so 
                                your finished decollage can be quilted or stitched later, if you prefer, and will also discuss mounting and framing 
                                options. You'll finish your fabric landscape in class! See class samples on the Landscapes pages and also on the 
                                Student Gallery pages.

                                $65 + tax includes all materials and supplies, plus a handout. Just bring sharp scissors (or borrow Debbie's) and a
