The Barn Painting Workshop is ideal for anyone who loves rustic country design and wishes to take a slice of upstate New York back home. This workshop will demonstrate the process and technique of designing, drafting, taping, and painting a quilt. At the end of the class, students will have a completed or nearly completed 10 x 10-inch quilt painting with complete instruction on how to finish and seal their masterpieces.

The past 21 years Koba has been a full-time artist and instructor in various mediums and techniques specialized in glassblowing, jewelry design, metal smithing and painting.

• Have you ever wondered how to create fabric dyes from nature, or even from your own kitchen? Looking to create homemade fabric patterns and colors for your next sewing project?

Join View and artist Mallory Zondag for her Natural Dyeing Lab, focused around creating a beautiful and rustic quilt painting just for you on Sunday, Sept. 25, from noon to 4 p.m.
