37 Sketches
June 23-27, 2014 — Gwen has designed this class especially for MISA based on ideas presented in her newest book 37 Sketches. During the workshop you will explore abstract design by making small fabric studies. Gwen thinks of these small studies as sketches. Just as painters use sketches to explore possibilities, fabric sketches are for working things out. You will learn new techniques, and will explore color and composition. You will have an opportunity to play, and to develop your own aesthetics in a fun and worry free space. Making sketches is like taking a crash course in design because working small allows you to explore more ideas, in a quick manner! The pieces you will make are approximately 9" x 11". Visit website

Nuno Felting - Weekend Workshop
June 28-29, 2014 (8am-4pm with 1 hour lunch break) — This hands-on workshop will teach participants the basics of nuno-felting (creating felted fabric using wool and silk fibers) and the making of pre-felted wool to use as design elements. Participants will have the opportunity to design and complete two flat-fabric pieces (e.g. scarves, table runners) during this 2-day class. Two distinct design styles and techniques will be explored - you'll learn to create watercolor-like (organic) designs as well as hard-edged graphic pieces. Instructors will also demonstrate additional felting methods such as needle-felting and traditional felting as time permits. This class promises to be broad in scope and allow students time to immerse themselves in the craft. Visit website

Quilting with Sashiko and Sun Prints
July 7-11, 2014 — During this workshop you will use non-toxic translucent paints to color background fabrics, or use fabric treated for cyanotype, which transfers exact imagery.

You will also explore how to develop sashiko foliage designs from photos, by studying and photographing foliage that would translate well into dimensional sashiko designs. By the end of this workshop you will have explored contemporary and traditional sashiko techniques, how to pattern transfer to dark cloth, what needles threads and fabrics to use, and how to establish the right stitch length, points and curves.
