Sandra Leichner, that award-winning, awe inspiring, appliqué artist from Albany, Oregon, was here for a whirlwind 3-day workshop.
This was one dedicated group. We had to practically drag them out of the studio at meal times!
Sandra was a very approachable, friendly, and knowledgable instructor — and dedicated. I always saw her in the studio, even after class hours.
Students could learn Sandra’s techniques using one of Sandra’s designs or they could work on their own.
This is just one of the incredible pieces designed and created by Sandra that she brought to show the class. There was amazing detail throughout.
Every day Sandra would give process demos, working with small groups of the students at a time, so that everyone could be close and see clearly what was being shown.
The following are some examples of the student projects in the works.
On the final day at cookie time, the group gathered in the dining rooms for a class picture.
Everyone loved the class with Sandra. We hope to bring her back in the future to each another workshop.
Here are couple of the comments from the students written our room journals:
