Designing the Surface with Kevin Womack
Designing the Surface with Kevin Womack Have you longed to create your own fabrics, but don’t know where to start? Join Kevin as he guides you through a series of easy steps in designing with fabric paints. Start by sampling the effects of transparent, opaque and metallic paints and move on to utilizing a multitude of methods to create original fabric designs. Each day, you will build layers of design as you add to your technique toolbox. Emphasis will be placed on creating cohesive compositions. Covered will be a variety of techniques including printing with found objects, creating your own stamps, working with silkscreens, batik with soy wax, gelatin plate mono- printing and more. Join in the fun as we play, experiment and explore design.
July 29-30 Class 2
Creativity with Cloth with Jennifer Broemel
Do you love experimenting with re-purposed fabrics? Lets take everyday fabrics and work them into something beautiful; unexpected. Jen will inspire you to look at the world more mindfully, more carefully. Explore your creative urges and trust your own artistic craving so you can find beauty in the minute and mundane! So this is more than making a mini quilted art collage from re-purposed cloth and scraps. This is an all new way of seeing!
Aug. 1-2 Class 3
Machine Quilting: the Basics & Beyond with Sandra Palmer Ciolino
This 2-day machine quilting workshop is designed for beginning machine quilters as well as quilters with machine quilting experience who wish to review basic techniques and sharpen their skills. Participants will learn to prepare their stations and machines for quilting, adjust machine tension, and choose suitable quilting threads and needles. The majority of the workshop will be spent becoming familiar with and stitching a variety of walking foot and free-motion machine quilting designs and motifs: linear, grid, meander, texture/filler, focal, echo, and channel – on layered quilt samplers or on small quilts, if desired. Plenty of class time will be devoted to developing and practicing designs and motifs that most interest you and are appropriate for the style of quilts you enjoy creating.
