The Protea class is one of our series of wildflower art quilt classes with Denise Griffiths. Denise is an award winning local quilter, having exhibited and been awarded at the Sydney Quilt Show and Internationally many times in Houston TX USA. We are very lucky in Berry to have had a series of quilt classes programmed with Denise over the last two and a half years!

The wildflowers are beautiful and it is an opportunity for quilters to be inspired to step outside the box with their making. You will be able to try of some of Denise’s innovative but not fussy or difficult art quilt techniques that may take you on a technicolour quilt making journey beyond traditional piecing. 

In the two days of class you will learn to make the Protea Flower. The class sample is designed to be a wall hanging on it’s own or you could make multiple flowers and leaves and save them up to make into an incredible multi flower composition similar to Dotty Roo or Flora Australis below. There is some dense machine embroidery on the leaves and the clever techniques for making, shaping and colouring the flower cone and petals form the bulk of the workshop. 

*Note** Even though we have listed this class to learn a particular flower please enquire if you would like to complete a flower you have begun in another class.  (Subject to numbers and mix of abilities this could be possible. Make sure you get in touch before booking and we will see what we can do to accommodate you.)
