'The Apple Door' Appliqué Workshop with Martine APAOLAZA
"I've been creating landscapes for a long time, my paintings are a sort of textile painting combining appliquéd fabrics and embroideries (preferably cotton and linen + threads, usually embroidery thread). I have different techniques to develop them. After a long practice of basic appliqué followed by reverse appliqué, I let myself to work in a much freer way, which brings much more authenticity in my works.
A full biography is visible on my site www.martine-apaolaza.odexpo.com
I created the "The Apple Door" project using BeBe Bold fabrics exclusively and I propose a course which combines appliqué, reverse appliqué, and raw edge appliqué; as well as basic embroidery stitches.
This is a very lively and cheerful project, which allows you to acquire a solid working base, to access more personal projects. This is one of the methods that I use a lot in my tables but on a much smaller scale."
This course is hosted by Martine Apaolaza in Arc et Senans (France)
