"Quilt Experiments: In Search of Our Creative Edge"
August 2-4, 2019
 

In this workshop, we will "play" with ways to build up layers of fabric using quilting, stitching, applique, rearranging, deconstructing, and collage. You will make at least two 12" square flat panels of thick quilting each day. (This is the basic technique I developed that I use in all of my work. I quilt first - before stitching any imagery or patterns. It is the opposite of traditional quilting.) These panels are the structures that are like your prepared canvases. They'll be used for our experiments. We'll cut parts out, reconfigure them, and, although in this class we'll be working in two dimensions, we'll start to add three-dimensional elements. Discover unexpected combinations, learn new techniques, and begin something magnificent!

"Layers, Lines and Image"
September 20-22, 2019
 

Art always makes reference to other images and narrative. For our purposes we reference book pages, maps, cloth and other found materials as a starting point to inform our process from layering and cutting techniques through to stitch, paint and mark. During this workshop you will make small personal works with narrative and meaning (and humor). Low-tech methods will transform raw materials and found objects into textile art. Simple drawings, staining and coloring of cloth and paper, cutting, pasting, stitching, and collage will be our primary tactics to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. We'll make a book form, but this is not a book-binding course. (This is a 3-day workshop)
