Session Q3A

Designing the Surface

Kevin Womack

About the Instructor:
Kevin Womack is a textile artist living in Lynchburg, Virginia. While majoring in the sciences at James Madison University, he satisfied his strong interest in the arts by including several elective art courses as part of his studies. Kevin earned his bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and went to work in the IT field. He continued his artist pursuits, exploring photography, metals/jewelry, pottery and oil painting in community art classes.

In 1986, Kevin was introduced to quilting by his maternal grandmother. Having always loved the legacy of family quilts, he decided to have her teach him the tradition. While his interest in other media has waned, his passion for fiber has endured. Over the years, Kevin studied with many accomplished textile artists and developed a love for hand dyeing and patterning fabrics with surface design techniques. His experiments produce a line of unique fabrics and clothing that he exhibits and sells.

Kevin’s artwork and quilts have been exhibited at several local and regional shows.  His collaborative work with artist Eleanor McCain was selected for inclusion in the Quilt National ‘13 exhibition and Quilt Visions Biennial 2014.  In addition to his fabric business, Kevin teaches and lectures nationally.


Session Q3B

Creativity With Cloth

Jennifer Broemel

About the Instructor:
I am a former architect, self taught textile artist.  I was drawn to cloth by the process, I love sewing, hand sewing, machine sewing, embroidery, all of it.  I love experimenting with repurposed fabrics and am especially interested in taking everyday fabrics and working them into something beautiful; unexpected.  My intention is to inspire others to look at the world more mindfully, more carefully. To inspire them to explore their creative urges. Hoping that in trusting their own artistic craving that they can find beauty in the minute and mundane, it is out there, everywhere and once you trust it, it will be found.


Session Q3C

Daren Redman

About the Instructor:
Daren Redman is a three-time Quilt National artists. Her art medium is the quilt made from her hand-dyed fabrics, representing abstract landscapes in textiles. The endless colors in the leaves, grasses, tree trunks, moss in the Indiana landscape is a constant inspiration. Nature and her travels are a recurring theme in her large-scale wall art and 3D textile work. She only uses her hand-dyed fabric in her art which she cuts intuitively to represent her surroundings whether in her back yard or on her travels with her husband through Europe and the United States.

Daren’s artist in residencies have included the 
Grand Canyon National Park with a 3 week stay where she hiked Rim-Rim, photographed, dyed silks and created 8 large-scale 3D textile installations
 while at the North Rim artist cabin. She also was at the Mill Race Center, Columbus, Indiana for one week where she created 2 large art quilts. She was chosen as an artist for the
