Here’s a creative way to help clean up our planet: make art from single-use plastic bags. Make art inspired by nature with guidance on cutting, stitching, & finishes. 3-hour workshop *Materials List will be sent out after registration.
A collection of diverse tidbits holds a great deal of promise. Transform bits of vintage lace & snippets of shiny Lycra into a beautiful background or a stand-alone composition. Experiment by adding unusual threads, collected thread snippings and yarns for added texture. *Material List will be sent after registration.
STRIPPY SCRAPPY QUILT
Put fabric scraps to dynamic use. All techniques are demonstrated and samples are abundant. Incorporates basic quilt making techniques. *Material List will be sent after registration.
EASY PEASY CIRCLES
Learn how to easily and evenly piece circles into your quilts using the “freezer paper frame – glue baste – heat it – stitch” method. Piece circles into an existing quilt top or a block for a quilt. *Materials List will be sent after registration.
THREAD PAINTING AND THREAD SKETCHING COMBINED
Create magic right before your eyes! A preprinted design easily guides you through each step. You will be amazed at how a straight and zigzag stitch can create a beautiful composition. *Materials List will be sent after registration
SIMPLE THREAD PAINTING
Never thread painted before? Then this workshop is a great place to start. The straight and zigzag stitches are the little work horses. A preprinted design easily guides you through each step so there is no stress about how to proceed. 3 hour workshop.
Simple Thread Painting
Quilters will explore and strengthen their own brainstorming/ideation skills. Every participant will be given the same one-word prompt, & begin a 15” x 15” composition (in fabric) to illustrate the concept. Following the lunch break, each artist randomly draws a new composition from a pile/bag to complete. Participants are asked to go through the problem-solving process again, starting with a composition from another artist. At the end of the day, there will be a short discussion about creativity, problem-solving and ownership of the outcome in the collaborative process. This thinking activity is intended to expand artists’ approach to their work and composition. It is not appropriate for a beginner looking to learn a sewing technique or specific pattern or process. *Materials List will be sent after registration.
