TWO DAY WORKSHOPS

 

 

Art Quiltlets - Intermediate level

Using fabric and embellishments, we will creat 6” x 8” original small art quilts. Learn design and colour principles while playing with simple design concepts. It’s easier than you might think to create one-of-a-kind work. A very relaxed class for those wanting to explore design as well as build up their embellishing and machine quilting skills.

Simply Stunning Scrap Quilts - all skill levels

In this scrap quilts workshop I will lead the students to construct 5 basic blocks using my “no pins” methods of piecing and speed cutting techniques. Once the students have made each of the blocks we will discuss the designs possible by mixing and matching those blocks to create a new quilt pattern or use one that is provided in the handouts.

Quilts on the Wild Side - Intermediate level

Students come to class with fabrics in a preferred colour palette and work to create a truly unique quilt. Think sunsets, poetry, deepest Africa, deep sea adventure... Concepts of creativity, colour usage, themes, embellishments and dimensional techniques are learned in this no-pressure class.

Designing Art Quilts the Easier Way - Intermediate level

Students will be using pages from magazines to select background, composition and colour for their original art pieces. All you need are three pages from magazines and the rest is just sewing! You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to create a one-of-a-kind artwork this way. Colour and design theory as well as piecing and machine quilting techniques are taught in this skills-building workshop.
