Applique is a technique of ‘applying’ or layering fabric on top of each other to create a motif. Our patchwork Lena Pugacheva specialises in Art Quilts and artistic applique. In this class she will show you how to do this simple but very effective technique by making her block of the month cushions. You may choose the pattern you wish to do in class and all students will be giving digital copies of the patterns to use in future.
Taught by Lena who lives in Dublin, her husband and two daughters. She grew up and spent most of my life in Kharkov, Ukraine, where she studied and worked as an English teacher at university. Lena also studied in an art school as a teenager and tried many art and craft forms before she took up patchwork and quilting.
Since moving to Ireland Lena dedicated herself to art and design, graduating with a BA in Graphic Design and honing her drawing and quilting skills to develop her own personal style. You can find out more about her work here
